    Hello I’m new to the e46 world and new to this forum. I recently purchased a 330ci and was driving it for about a month and a half. Today on my way to work I looked at the temp gauge and saw that it was in the red so I pulled over to a gas station near by. Checked the coolant level and saw that...

    So about 4 months ago I replaced my thermostat due to idle overheating, and a few weeks ago I was driving and as I came to slow down I noticed movement of the needle went right into red. I don't think it's the expansion tank because I see no fluids leaking out of the vehicle, both fans seem to...
