Most likely a bad Thermostat or Water Pump. Replace the Thermostat, the cheapest part, and if it still overheats replace the water pump.

P0340 fault code


Assuming you have a 1996 328i convertible based on your photo as there were no US 96 328is.
It is located at the left front end of the the engine cylinder head under the plastic cover behind the VANOS solenoid next to the top of the oil filter housing. In addition to the new sensor, you will need new metal o-rings for the VANOS line, a new rubber o-ring for the camshaft sensor and perhaps a new socket head cap screw if you round out the internal hex trying to loosen this Loctited screw.
See Figures 1 & 3 at the following Pelican Parts link.

I have a 1997 BMW 328i. It will not start wont even make a noise when turning key. Tried jump but didn't work. Hit the starter with a hammer. Changed battery. Lights work radios works just won't start...


try removing the spark plugs to ensure that you do not have a hydraulic lock in a combustion chamber. This happens when a crack or faulty head gasket allows water into the chamber and when the piston comes up it is prevented from going over the top of the stroke. Removing the plugs allows the water to come out and the engine to spin.

1996 bmw 328i has bin sitting for three years what are the first things I should do before I start it


I would change the oil, disconnect the coil or fuel pump and crank the engine for several minutes to let the oil pump work.
Put a few gallons of fresh gas in the tank, and see what happens.
You may have to run that gas out and then replace the fuel filter.
If it starts ok, just let it idle for several minutes before you raise RPM. Listen for noises and see if the cooling system works.
There is a chance you may have to change the trans fluid and filter after you try to drive it.
And after driving a few miles, be sure and check the brakes and all of the engine hoses for leaks.

1996 328i bmw sometimes loses power and won't pass smog test


Ok you will have to have it scanned. It probably has cylinder misfire codes and random cylnder misfires. You could need spark plugs and or coils. The scan will tell you exactly which cylinder is missing. That will cure your problem and remember to change your oil and filter right before you go in for the smog test. Also if the car hasn't been serviced in a while it would be a good idea to replace the air filter and fuel filter.
