So im pretty much stranded as of yesterday my e36 is overheating like a mutha ****** my guess for a quick fix is a fan clutch since the water pump and thermostat are new and the fan spins freely with a wobble when I turn the car off im in scarborough and in dire need of a fan with the clutch if possible please msg or text me if you have one 289-892-7289 Mike
Free if you come get it have you tried driving with the ac on to turn on the aux fan I kept breaking fans last year due to broken engine mounts and I drove with no clutch fan at all and never over heated I just turned the ac on so that the electric fan comes on also your car shouldn't really over heat while you are driving at speed are you sure its just the fan
I actually think its the head too but its just a leak my ac was taken out last summer sat too low so I kept breaking the pulley at the bottom since it only sits about 2 inches off the ground but basically I was on the highway car started over heating I got it off the ramp and it built up so much preasure that it blew the hose off the heater core so I by passed it but even when im driving it doesn't cool of the fan is really weak and theres no other fan to cool it I do have the parts for my ac so I may try to hook it back up and see what happens so I can atleast get to you and pick the part up
I'm thinking your problem is something much deeper than a fan if its over heating all the time maybe the radiator is slightly clogged or thermostat is stuck closed even though you just replaced it it could still have failed
