Be careful - at the very worst it could be an exhaust leak or something that's getting into the cabin (if it's a right-hand-drive, that is) - try to crawl into the footwell while it's running to see where the air is coming from.

You may need a new cable,it could be hanging up inside the outer cover and snagging making it hard to push,it could be frayed and could break as well,disconnect it at the throttle body and see if it still is hard to push then you will know if it is the cable or the throttle body

If the temperature control is on cool....sounds like you have other problems with AC. ( compressor not working, needs R134,) Check under the hood for a box that has fuses in it, their are also relays in it. Look for the relay marked AC.

Hot air is coming out of the back of the head

How did you even know to look for that? Do you have an exhaust leak? Maybe you feel exhaust leaking (blowing) up when you give it gas.

My AC for 1996 328i failed and now hot air is blowing by my gas pedal and it's making it hard drive. Any advise?

Hot as in outside air or hot as in heated air?
If you are getting heated air that you do not want, remember that the failure mode of the heater control valve is to "fail open" on this car. If you unplug it and power the center pin while applying ground to the two outside pins, you can hear the two sides of the valve snap shut. If it does not shut, it is stuck or there is an electrical failure inside the valve. Connections inside the valve can corrode.

Hot Air near gas pedal

you have a leak on the bottom part of your firewall and you need to seal it up to prevent this from happening anymore. this opening happened because of the dash and all of the wiring that had to come through somewhere.

Overheating problem

You did not say what model/year, but with an engine with an aluminum head ANY overheating could cause a head gasket failure, and putting water in the radiator without know how to use the bleed screw can introduce an air bubble into the cooling system that will prevent the thermostat from working properly.

Please, have a mechanic look at this IMMEDIATELY (and do not even drive it to him) or you could be needing a VERY expensive repair.

BMWs and cooling problems do not go together-- I am on BMW #10 and have learned the hard way!
