First Thanks for all your help putting my 325 together. I have worked on e30s before but not e36. Yesterday I developed a major coolant leak there is some kind of temp sensor on the air box never seen anything like this just 2 coolant lines no electrical connections. One of the inlets broke off and was dumping coolant part number on it is bmw1730682 what is this? I had 2 get home and just put a piece of copper tubing between the coolant lines and bypassed the switch. will I kill the engine by doing this? what is this part don't know what to ask for Thanks for your help
I tried to cross it to that number and I did get a thermostst but looked totally different. This piece goes into the intake air box and has 2 small coolant lines going to it but no electrical or vaccum connections will it hurt to bypass it?
