Question about 2004 BMW 318i Touring
Posted by Anonymous on
Hi there anonymous,
The BMW has a very precise method the bleed air from the cooling system. My best advice is to get the FACTORY manuals for your car... Some cars the bleeder is quite OBVIOUS on the ENGINE side of the TOP radiator hose.
It can take several runs to get the air completely out (not done on a hot engine).
Before I ultimately folded and purchased my set
535i, 1986 paper set.. I successfully used Bentley books...
If you are not up to the price of paper books... CD can be also purchased on-line... check out amazon & eBay.

SOURCE: 94 bmw 318iC Heater not working
1st thing to check is the coolant level. Low coolant level results in no, or little heat (not enough coolant to circulate thru the heater core). What does your engine temp gauge indicate? (or is it just a warning light?) If the car is running at what appears to be lower than normal temp., u may have a thermostat that's stuck open. This would cause the engine to not reach operating temp, and u would not have heat. Check the above 2 items 1st, then let me know what u found. If that doesn't fix it, we will continue, let's do the easy and not too expensive stuff 1st!

The heater operates from the hot water from the engine cooling system flowing through the heater radiator which is inside the air ducts under the dash. I suspect that the control wire/cable that goes from the heater control lever has broken or become disconnected from the heater tap that controls the volume of hot water through the heater radiator. Some times there is also a flap in the air ducts that is operated by the heater lever tha varies the amount of air that is heated. The tap may be in the engine bay or tucked in behind the air ducting.
