Hallo,

I am Ben from Holland and new with a BMW.. I can buy a 325i 24V E36 but i have some questions about this one:
- the fan keeps running even when motor is below 90°C
- it is very hot in the car
- the airco isnt running good
- and the BMW has chains for the drivetrain does it? or are it belts?

Does someone know where i can download the service manual???

Greets

1. I don't really see any problem in that. It may be a stuck temp sensor or thermostat. Maybe.

2. In the car? What do you mean? Is it out in the sun? Or do you mean the air from the vents? If so, see 3.

3. Check the freon level. My dad's infiniti needed to be charged once and that fixed the problem nicely.

4. Chains. Belts are for HONDAs....

Hello Ben Beware from Holland to the forums.

Sounds like the fan works really good, if it is hot outside it will certainly be inside.

If the climate controll doesn't work well, you might recharge the air conditioner and replace the microfilter.

Yes the e36 cars have a chain, and if you find a service manual, lemme know! :wink

{EDIT: you most have posted as soon as i opened the thread, cam!}
