    I could easily blow through ours too. With a new one it gets to temp alot quicker and gets closer to the correct temp. But the egr is unplugged on this one too. It must provide another path to the engine.

    RealOEM.com * BMW E46 320d Cooling System Water Hoses As mi1ky said, there is a flow through.All coolant must circulate in a loop so i guess item 11 in the diagram is the loop through for the egr stat.

I've seen that the idle now is 830 rpm, and the fuel consumption maybe decreased about 0.5 liters.
    This is why i suggest disconnecting the connector to the maf to see will it change anything with the lack of power.By disconnecting the maf the ecu will run on a default map to compensate.

    Thank you guys for helping me with your answers, because i dont want to go at mechanic with these small issues, cuz` here in my zone shit happens, if you go at mechanics, you come with with issues in another places )
    Yesterday i ventilated the coolant instalation, by pulling out the air through the screws from coolant system hoses. I run for 20 km with medium rpm and medium speed, and temperature increased to 85 88 90 degrees and fixed there. First time when i run with the car in my small city and i told you that the temperature doesnt increse ABOVE 60 , i thought that this engine doesnt take so much time to warp up. In the past i had petrol engine and i think that this was my issues, i compared this diesel with petrol, and of course that the diesel will warp slower.
    Today i will try to clear the filters from turbo pressure converter and try to reconditionate the pressure converter, they look the same and have a microfilter which can be cleared.

    I want to ask you a thing regarding EGR. In EGR enters two big pipes, one from the front of the car(the biggest one) and one from the left(left of you staying in front of the car). Which hoose recirculates the exausted gases ? At me it's very clear that EGR is not working now, the small piston from interior doesnt move even if i accelerate the car and i look on EGR with the big hoose pulled out.
    The EGR valve must move like here

    The small pipe on the left recirculates the exhaust gasses.The big pipe on the front is the turbo induction.

    Thank you for the email, the day after tomorrow i will try to test the pressure converters, from EGR and from Turbo too. Also i will disconnect de MAF to try a run without it. What about MAP sensor from intake manifold ? If i start the car without it, the car accelerates itself without pushing acceleration..well i think that only with MAF disconnected(the piece near the air filter).

    I tried today to disconnect the MAF..The car runs very very bad and it is very sluggish, well i think that is not a MAF issue. Also i notice a high fuel consumption , average of 8% with not hard acceleration , I dont want to think at consumption if i press the pedal a little bit more.
    Tomorrow i`m gonna check the vacuum hoses from turbo and EGR. Could be possible to have low power on low rpm if EGR doesnt work ? Also i`m thiniking to give a good clean at MAF sensor.

    Have you removed the map sensor and spray the little hole with electrical contact cleaner,do not poke anything into the hole,just spray.
