Hi people i went to drive my car the other day i started the car the temp guage seemed to be reading correct (cold) then shot up to the red as i drove it it went back down to cold the heater dont seem to get very hot and the temp needle never sits in the middle were it should do (rough operating temp) ive checked the water got plenty, could this be the thermostat failing to close or open this has been occuring over the last week all your help will be great as i really want to get to the bottom of it before it escalates to something bigger

Hi. 2000 318i engine is the M43. Here is a link to the thermostat- http://bmwfans.info/parts/catalog/E...000/march/browse/engine/waterpump_thermostat/ , I think the EGR is on a diesel engine.
Someone has already posted a link to a cheaper supplier, also try Eurocarparts or GSF parts. Jim
