Hey i'm new to the forums and thought someone could help me!
I have a 1995 320ia with 109xxx km
The temperature gauge had been going up, but never hitting red, so i replaced the thermostat but still was kinda doing it after.... then 2 months ago it overheated (the tube leading to the radiator or whatever burst) and it was steaming and everything..got that fixed, and had some sutff changed (I don't have the exact invoice), everything good
So yesterday, in crazy traffic and it was unusually hot (compared to other days) I noticed the temp going up again, which it hasn't done at all since I got everything fixed..
Today, everything was all good, and I parked it on my driveway....started it 15 min later and it was making weird sounds, shaking/vibrating badly and choking basically, and the rpm was going up and down (500-1300?). Turned it off, started it again, same thing except it basically shut off....then waited 5 mins, started it, fine, and moved it in my garage...for the last month SOMETIMES i would have a kinda choppy idle when I first started it but It went away..
I'm not sure if the overheating has anything to do with it, so I decided just to stick that in incase....
anyone know what could be the problem? I'm gonna bring it to the dealer soon but I jus want some opinions
..hoping their is not some massive internal damage
Hope this make sense! thx in advance
