Thanks for the reply. No they haven't told me but I am definetly going to get it diagnosed again on Monday and would for sure raise your point with them.
The reason that prompted me to get all this done was that almost 2 months ago the Eml light came on and when I took it to the mechanic he told me that the exausht system was clogged and did an alteration on it , that is he took out the front silencer and instead fitted in two straight pipes. After a while, at the onset of winter season, the fan belt started making a screeching sound. When he opened up the belt it was extremely rustic - almost like withering away (falling apart). The bearings were also making noise so got the belt as well as all the three bearings replaced. Anyhow, after a shortwhile the car became sluggish. On diagnosis it showed a faulty camshaft sensor. However, it got me really worried and so I took the car to the most renowned bmw machenic in South Africa and got it fully diagnosed. As per his diagnosis, there was a leakage in radiator and thermostat was also leaking as there were antifreeze marks on it. That is why I did all the work as mentioned above.
Now, there is no performance issuses with the car except for this temperature issue. But what I do not understand is that during noon when it is really hot the guage stays in the middle but in the morning when it is cold - below 5 centrigade- it would rise 2mm above
midpoint and no matter even if I would turn on the heater it won't climb down. Similarly, just to check I have also turned on the ac to see whether it would rise further but it just stays there. But when I turn off the car to walk my son to his classroom in the morning and come back it readjust itself to mid point. I must also mention that his school is just 2 km away from my home and it does this when I am half way to the school. I have done nearly everything on this car and have spent alot of money. At the same time, I like this car and simply sette
