Overheating is a serious issue. Your car's engine will eventually seize and cause damage.
Check cooling system for leaks.If no leaks present, then check condition and operation of thermostat. Remove this and place in hot water (it should open). Then place in cold water (it should close). Replace if necessary.
Check operation of radiator fan.

Bmw 316i had a service a week ago but car losing power when first started up.. Once it heats up the car seems fine. Any ideas

is it just idling roughly or hesitate when accelerating? You may have a clogged cold start injector in which you could have poor performance before the vehicle heats up to its operating temp but once it reaches its peak temp will run fine. Did your servicing include a tune up and/or fuel system cleaning if not I would recommend one.

Cant break the pressure line lose

Try heat....this will allow the fitting to expand, and make it easier to loosen. A small propane torch should give you enough heat.
