hello guys, got my first 5 series today. got a good price for it. Everything working fine, however there is one problem. The temperature gauge on the dash stays on cold. it doesnt move even after driving for a good 30mins. im concerned about it as i wouldnt know if the car was overheating at all.
Has anyone any ideas what this could be? the car drives fine with no problems at all other than this minor glitch.
have just found out from the previous owner, he brought the 5 with no engine in it. He put in a 1.8i from a 3 series BMW that was used for track racing, so there is no thermostat in the car. I use the car for work, so abit of long distance driving? am i likely to overheat? and would it be simple enough to put in a thermostat then? except i wouldnt know exactly which one it needs as ive been told the engine is from a 3 series, but he is not sure what year... how annoying!
