SOURCE: 1991 bmw 318is 4 door 16 valve motor, runs hot and radiator cold

you may have bad waterpump,the impeller on pump may be borken, just because it doesnt leak doesnt mean its good.also could have exhaust entering cooling system (bad headgasket) if pump is good have a block test done.

There is a blockage or leak in your cooling system. That may come in a few different forms:
Incorrectly installed thermostat
Water pump not functioning - you may see water dripping from the pump or a stain from the hole under the water pump.
Severely coroded hoses/coolant passages - if the fluid is brown and the inside of the radiator rusty
External leak - you would see fluid on the ground Internal leak - you would see steam/white smoke from the tail pipe or water in the oil (may look like chocolate milk or not), if the oil level is extremely high this would be a good indication
heater core bypassed

Tempurture gauge goes from normal to hot then back to normal replace thermostat already and still doing the same thing


-You could have an air pocket trapped in the engine. Look for an air bleed valve on or around the thermostat housing. Crack it open with engine running until only coolant, no air, is expelled. If none, take off the radiator cap (not while engine is hot, though) and run the engine until the thermostat opens and hot coolant begins circulating through the radiator. Shut off engine and put the cap back on. That should expel any air that was trapped. If it continues going hot and normal on the gauge, try replacing the temp sender unit. Also make sure coolant system is full, that includes the overflow tank.

Overheating but ive already replaced the thermostat water pump but still rung hot no water flow circulating need answers .etc


When its cold remove the rad cap, start it up, put your heater blower on full and full heat on, then when the engine gets hot look inside the rad you should see the water flowing. If its not flowing feel the top of the thermostat housing/rad hose it should be nice and hot, it its not your stat is not opening. Are you sure you got the correct temp stat for this car? Was it properly installed and is the system full with no air in it? You can also get a melt stick from your local Napa, making sure its the right temp stick for your car, put it on the stat housing and see if it melts. If it does and you still have no flow either its stuck closed, or its the wrong temp stat.

After a long trip when engine gets hot, it wont start until it cools off


make sure you have 50/50 coolant and water.i would replace thermostat and radiator pressure cap.replace air filter make sure engine getting fresh air.check radiator cores and front grille from debris blocking off airflow through grille to radiator.if problem continue flush out coolant system radiator engine block and heater core.water going bad cause over heat problems also.

Car continues to run hot


Sounds like you have a defective water thermostat as long as nothing is seen physically leaking when it is warming up in the first 2-5 minutes.

If you are a do it yourselfer, carefully remove the thermostat without damaging the gasket.

Replace it as preventative maintenance if it has not been replaced from 50-95k miles. It can be lower but that is a good range when you replace one.
