So ive been messing around with the RealOEM site along with the BAVAUTO site trying to get everything together and managed to come up with another issue...So my dumb ass thought that the Thermostat was the Idle Regulating Valve and was trying to connect the hoses that go to it, naturally with no luck. thankfully im no where near actually getting the car to start so no harm no foul.
Well turns out my Idle Regulator is missing and i have to buy a new one of those, but now i need to know 100% what the lines going to and from the thermostat look like. i checked OEM and it doesnt give you much about it RealOEM.com * BMW E30 318i ADDITIONAL THERMOSTAT/WATER HOSE
as you can see i have no idea what im doing with this car but its been fun learning, at least when it breaks down in the future ill have some know how of waht im doing.
But anyway if you guys have a 318i and you have pictures of it or could take close up shots of the engine lines id appreciate it. just something so i can see where the lines are coming from and what they're going to
