Not sure about your location, but the theromstat and part number are as follows. I'll let you know when either one of the following happens.. I find a DIY or I CREATE a DIY.vids_blk323Ci said:yup same exact symptoms. I think we may have to do a search on roadfly.
Heard the actual p/n is about $52, and sits low in the engine, but Im not sure were. I just hope I dont have to do a complete coolant flush either. Let me know if you here somethin dude
I think the part numbers are diferent from 99 to 00 and they may even be different due to 2dr vs 4 dr. The thermostat is located in picture 1 right where the LEFT line for Item 4 stops. The gasket, number 5, shows the outline of the thermostate (the round part). The second picture shows the bottom half of the cooling system. Nothing should need to be done. I'm doing my thermostat tomorrow, I'll let you know how it goes.vids_blk323Ci said:Dude do you have a picture of what the thermostat looks like? Also do you know where it sits in the car?
P/N I show is: 13 62 1 433 077
I also show 11 53 1 427 040
Both from a 2001 ETK. Where did u source the part number from dude? Thanks
Hey, I'm in the middle of the thermostat replacement now and it's easy as pie. Unfortunitely they sold me the e36 thermostat so I have a trip to the dealer to make. I'll let you know the details as soon as I get back and finished.vids_blk323Ci said:anyone know what the fault code would be for a faulty thermostat??
