cool. the only thing is, my rad seems to be different. the rad and expansion tank are as one unit and there aren't any sensors on it other than the low coolant level sensor.

the temp sensor will be inside your front bumper (driver's side). as for your rad all e36 rads are similar so read the links that jb posted to bleed your system. you really need to use that bleed screw that's at the top or you can't get rid of all the air
