I recently semi flushed my cooling system ie: ran water through it (no detergent) let it warm up emptied re ran water through it three times and then replaced coolant to 50-50. Since then my temp gauge stays cold for a VERY long time (15-20 min) before coming into the normal op. temp. range if at all. It does move but stays in blue. Any worries here?? What could cause that? oh 91 750il. Cool is better than hot but this cool?
Checked fuses, at least the obvious ones all are fine. Where is the temp sensore located on an e32? There is a coolant level sensor on he resevoir tank but cant find any other sensors in the line or is that it?. (man I need a book for this car)
Ok maybe I ride the short bus. I cannot find the cooling pipe that holds the sensors. I looked around the waterpump inlet/outlet hoses and nothing. Grrrrrr! any idea what part of the motor? front lower/upper, rear mtr, TRUNk?
