Question about BMW 318
There is a lot of things that may cause this situation,the thermostat not opening is my first guess.The coolant sensor senses the hot,218 degree coolant as it touches the sensor.But ,if the thermostat is not opening(stuck closed) ,then the sensor cannot sense the hot 218 degree coolant because it has not got to the sensor.This sensor is what tells the computer to activate the coolant relays,witch in turn,power the coolant fans.If the coolant does not flow threw the thermostat,it can not go threw the heater core,that warms the inside of the car.I hope this is helpful,and if so,please let us know,thank you.

the oil level and the first thing in color is normal. Normal oil is
usually shades of brown to black in color. If the oil is white or
gray color is your car to the failure of more than initially seemed
to have happened. This means that the block head gasket is damaged.
When the oil is decent, and then check the oil level is the norm
following. Is the coolant level is normal. CAUTION not to check at a
time when the engine is warm or hot. If you find that the coolant
level is low, add it. If coolant levels are normal, check whether the
car interior heater blowing hot air or not. If you do not blow hot
air then it is probably the air inside the cooling system. The system
should be discharged from the air. However, if the cabin heater blows
hot air then you should definitely check the thermostat. Each car has
a sort of thermostat to be tested, and they differ in the parish. If
you still have not solved the overheating problem, described the
situation may have a defective cooling fan or a cooling radiator for
the accuracy of work capacity. Definitely happy to answer all your
questions. Please note that cold weather is had different error
character. In this case, please consult with experts before.
