So i have to different problem with my E46 please help

1) if i drive in the city my car will have heat, and temp gauge will maintain at half way. As i get on the highway and and pickup speed the car temp will drop into the blue mark and the car will have have no heat for the interior to keep me warm. hoping for it just a quick temp controller vale

2) When the car is cold in the morning it will remain idle fine with no problem. As i start to take off it may just cut off and i have to restart. Some time if do like 2-3 times before it will work correctly

3) My heat seat work great but the temp seem not to be control correctly it get so hot like it about to burn my leg so i have to turn it off.

4) Last but not least the car front driver caliber decied to lockup on me today so i guess it just a new set of caliber and rotor and brake pad.

Any recommend on where to get any of the parts? I just want equivalent to oem or better i am not looking for perfomance stuff.


Thanks a million in advance for all the members help

Your therm is stuck open..."whaler" fn spellchecker...w a h l e r is OE...bleed thoroughly afterwards...read Mango's sticky...do what you can afford.

Maybe air leak, get codes read for free from Autozone...bet it's a lean condition, maybe pointing to MAF...it's air leak...but search for jfof and read his sig links.
3) My heat seat work great but the temp seem not to be control correctly it get so hot like it about to burn my leg so i have to turn it off.

Live with it. I do. Better than no heater at all. Think there's a temp sensor...not sure it's serviceable...it's certainly not worth the trouble.

Might be caliper...your rotors/pads might be fine, but if you drove a distance on them, you should replace at least the pads, I'd think, check the rotor, but look at the seal on the caliper. If it's bad, remanned is the way to go.

bmaparts.com has good prices and great delivery.
