Question about 1999 BMW 318 ti
My name is Doru, and i want to get some help regarding a problem with climatic control of temperature at my BMW e46 , 1.9 l .
The problem it is: I observed how works the clima control and I see a big diference between tehe temperature from inside and the temperature selected by my at control panel. For example: I select 24.5 C at control panel , after few minutes the clima sistem start to deliver hot air , every thing ok , but after the inside temperature is rising at selected temperature , my sistem don't try to keep constant the selected temperature . If I rise the selected temperature at 28 C , the sistem starts to deliver again hot air.
I supose to be a problem with a sensor for inside temperature ( I read about one sensor from control panel, but I don't now how to reach this sensor )

your water controll valve located at the right side of the engine near the extreme rear end of the inlet manifold may not be working properly hence the hot air .

I have a 318i and my climate control is faulty one sec it will be on then it shuts off then it may or may not come back on. and i noticed around the time that started happening my right blinker would start flicking erratically. just hoping for a little info.

Sounds like you're running rich.
First, change the air filter, and check that the air intake isn't blocked somewhere.
If that doesn't sort it out, it's the carb. They have an automatic choke (cold start), which could be sticking on and causing problems.
One thing it isn't is the timing belt (sorry Satanscash) as this engine doesn't have one... and even if it did, failure of the belt results in a very dead engine!
