EXCERPT (1998-2005 BMW 3 Series (E46) Service/Repair Manual):
A centrifugal-type coolant pump is mounted to the front of the engine. The belt-driven pump circulates coolant through the system whenever the engine is running.
An electrically heated thermostat regulates the engine coolant temperature and is controlled by the DME control module. The heated thermostat allows the engine to be operated at higher temperatures at idle and at part throttle. Having the ability to control the engine coolant temperature electronically results in improved emissions and performance. Problems with the heated thermostat can be diagnosed using a compatible scan tool.
Radiator and expansion tank
The radiator is a crossflow design. An expansion tank provides for coolant expansion at higher temperatures and easy monitoring of the coolant level. On cars with automatic transmission, ATF is circulated through an additional heat exchanger (ATF cooler).
Rear Stabilizer Bar
The rear stabilizer bar is mounted to the rear subframe and attached via stabilizer bar links to the rear upper control arms.
