Cause no heat temp gauge red lined in


sounds like the thermostat is stuck shut..unless the head gasket is blown somewhere.. it will pump the antifreeze level down to form an air pocket.. this will cause overheating constantly check each cylinder for even compression..the lowest reading will most likely be the blown cylinder..

Hi,my 1995 bmw 316i only blows cold air.even when the temp control is full at red it blows ice cold air,thanks.rod


check hot water is circulating through heater rad by feeling the inlet and outlet pipes as they come thru the bulkhead if ok it sounds like there is a control panel prob, if hot water isnt circulating make sure cooling system is bled properly, and you could try backflushing the system.

I am having overheating problems with my BMW 316i...The heating in the car has now been working for some time now but about 4 days ago...the car started to overheat...within minutes of starting the car...


well this depends on what engine you have, i have a 316i e46 and has a 1.9ltr engine, if that is the same it might be the engine thermostat has stuck and need replacing, thats the good news, the bad news is it could be your head gasket, 1.8ltr engines were prone to blowing the head gasket, look in the rad water bottle to see if there is any oil residue in there, and also take off the oil filler cap to see if its a creamy colour thats your worse senario, but its proberbly just the engine thermostat

I have a bmw 316i i have 30 to 40 miles worth of petrol inside the petrol tank and the car rev metre goes up and down and cars engine shuts down completely and it wont start untill it has quarter of a tank...


That sounds like the petrol pickup pipe in the tank has an air leak and when the fuel is dropping down below the leak it is sucking in more air than petrol.
The most likely cause of that is either the gauge sender untit or the fuel pump itself leaking (if the fuel pump on that car is inside the tank).

You have a bad head gasket. You are leaking coolant into the engine block through the cylinders. This is why you have white smoke, and the extra coolant that doesnt get burned off is going into your oil.
