Bmw 318i heater not working


Need more info, could be heater valve, could be heater switch, could be Radiator fluid low, could be Engine thermostat not working or not present so coolant is never getting hot enough to provide heat to the coil.

I have a 1997 bmw 318i that is overheating. Steam comes from back of engine compartment and the fan is not engaging. What could the problem be?


It is likely that the heater core has sprung a leak, or the hoses leading to the heater core have failed. This would cause a loss of coolant that would make the coolant temperature sensor think it wasn't necessary to turn the fan on, and would cause steam to appear to rise out of the back of the engine. If you turn the heater on inside the passenger compartment and get steam through the vents, it's DEFINITELY a heater core breach. Otherwise, check the hoses leading to the heater core and make sure they are still connected and not leaking. Good luck!

BMW 318i what part is that?? question


Looked at image and would say that that is where the hose comes off for the heater , but wouldn't know what to call it. Take the picture to the bmw dealership parts dept. they will know what it is called and order it for you. It the metal pipe broken for sure , or is the leak coming from the hose or the seal ?

BMW 318i wont start engine


I would have the battery tested. When they get cold they get weak. Next I would look at the wires on the starter to see if their loose.
