4039Re: [bmw e28] heat inquiry #2
- Dec 11, 2005Hi all. My 88 535is has HOT heat while sitting still
which cools within seconds when I start driving. The
blower motor has made intermittent noise for years but
now the noise gets worse as I accelerate (but doesn't
seem to have any decrease in output though). Weird
problem, I know. Any thoughts would be appreciated.
