engine temp whacked out '99 528i

Here's one for th e pros. Last winter (Minneapolis winter), the temp gauge on my 1999 528i, would max out acutely, I could turn off the ignition and it would return to normal. the engine was not overheating, but the gauge would redlline. also, sometimes the engine would run cold, the heater would not heat, thot it was a stuck thermostat, but it seemed to cure itself. It was not low on antifreeze, no engine codes. any ideas?

sounds like a frozen thermostat. costs about $60. from BMW dealer. about 1 hr to replace. might want to change antifreeze at that time. good luck.

agreed, change out thermostat (get an OEM one, not a cheapy) and antifreeze.
