I don't think the sensor has anything to do with your low coolant situation. Remember, the sensor is to keep the throttle body from freezing. If your throttle body is not frozen shut during those cold mornings, I wouldn't worry about.


drive the M3 when the climate is really cold. I live in louisville ky where the winters are mild typically, but the air is still very very cold. I have a camry for those days :) but I'm still curious about my coolant low situation. I know that my installer zip tied my sensor. What other options did he have? Is this going to cause a problem?? I started my m3 yesterday and it was pretty chilly outside, my engine almost died! It hesitated for about 3-4 seconds with a really really low idle, I thought it was going to just die on me, then it came up to the right idle and was ok from then on. I'm wondering if I need to have that sensor reinstalled. Opinions??
