    Thank you 4yor help. i took the vehicle to garage who got a tec in to check the sensor, (as it is not easy to come acros a manual), to check tis out. Ter first concern was the ingition, it turned out tat the barrel needed replacing, it seem tat when the key was turn to be turned off it might not of turn all the way for the coolant system to shut down. No hassels so far and its pretty dam hot wher i lived all the way in Hawkes Bay, the bay with all the sun. So once again i say thank you for your advice.

My 1997 bmw 318 ti keeps over heating

check your hoses see if when runnig they close up,if not loo for vents for letting are out of the system if ther is a air pocket inyour coolant system it willcause the engine to overheat make sure to run the heat when refilling coolant system. if this fails to solve your problem look for a gurgling sound coming from the rad or over flow tank look for this when engine is cold and runnig if you do hear this then you might have a blown head can buy a blown headgasket detection kit from your local auto parts store if you do hear or see this symtom.

1995 BMW not obtaining enough heat Any ideas

hows your temp gauge ?? in the middle ??
if so you have a restriction in your system or air.
bmw's are very famous for getting bubbles on the system and can overheat your vehicle so check your coolant level " on an incline "
re-fill if needed. turn it on with the radiator cap of. let it run for about an hour with your heater at the highest, keep track of your temp gauge and your coolant. refill to specs " marks " without putting the cap on. let it cool of for another hour, check coolant level again, if you had air it will be low, refill again and you should get hot air like crazy
