1988 BMW 318i temperature guage flickers between normal temp. through to max temp. Most of the time the guage is 3/4 to Hot. Main fan seems a little loose when hot - not tightening up. Coolant level OK no...


It could be the impellor wearing out on the water pump, though I have not heard of this issue in your make of car, I have seen it first hand in other makes. The thermostat may not be opening up all the way, flow restriction,. The coolant temperture sensor could be going out, and the gauge in the dash could be going out. You could have flow restrictions else where in the engine. Have you ever had the engine flushed? these are the things that I can think of that would make your engine run hotter than normal.

I have a 1997 bmw 318ti. on board computer


Hmmm. The unit that calculates the fuel is under the back seat base. There are two level sensors under covers on either side. Could be that you have a trapped wire shorting and when you go into reverse the back axle just momentarily jogs the shorted wire. I'd look at the wiring there.

I am having problems with my BMW running hot.What might the problem be?


if it heats up and overheats very quickly , I would say the thermostat is cooked. If it just generally runs at higher than normal temp I would say radiator is pluged up or temp guage or sender is faulty.

My 1997 318I BMW temp indicator would read normal after sittingand idling for approximately 20mins, and there was heat, after riding the guage would read cold and the air would be warm..it would never read...


Had a simular problem with a 318 myself, they are notorious to get air locked after replacing the thermostat, should have a blead screw on the main water hose, start the car and get up to temp then slowly undo the screw until water starts seeping, should be bubbly, persist with topping up the water until water runs clear, do not drive the car untill air lock is clear or it could blow the head gasket£££££
and or radiator.
