This model has a dodgy stat, the 2 little lugs which hold the stat centre to the plastic case can break off this lets the water bypass and so it doesnt heat properly

It may be possible that your heater core was faulty and some has by passed it. open hood and check for incoming and outgoing heater hoses into firewall(dash of car). it is also possible that the heater core is plugged, try getting your cooling system flushed

Where is the thermostat and water pump on a 1998 bmw 316i



  • They are both on the same side as the belt. You have to remove the fan and belts and the coolant as well. As you will see in the photo I have uploaded the thermostat housing. You remover the hose from the top of the radiator and the plastic housing that the hose is attached too is the thermostat housing. The water pump is right below (also indicated in the photo)

You know most people think of the worst when it comes to these things. Try this, let your run for about ten minutes then shut it off. Feel both upper and lower hoses and see if they feel about the same in temp. If not than it could be your thermostat. If everything feels fine then you may have a bad sensor.
