People are jjust preparing you for the worst. Do what is suggested above.

But e36's are old. hg get tired but also it has an iron block an an aluminum head. When the iron over heats the aluminum isnt to fond of it

sometimes you can get away with an over heat and be ok...depends on severity and how many times. These cars are old . No such thing as over heat limp mode back in those days. Not that that would do much because generally if your car is over heating it will do so even at idle or low rpm and low speed conditions(which is usually where it happens) You also cant have a car that automatically turns off because it begins to overheat. That would be unsafe.
