I had to replace the heater core. It heats great now. 1200.00 later. I think that is what you are going to have to do.

I agree with having to replace the heater core.

Hi George: So when you need to replace a heater core is that because there is NO heat at all or? Right now I smell a faint odor of antifreeze in the car, so does that mean the core is going? I have heat but not much air is coming out and yes I know it probably is the cabin filter. JOHN

Did you ever get a solution? I am currently having the same problem on a 1991 318i. No a/c, no heat, no rear defroster. I can hear the fan blowing quite strongly, but just a trickle of ambient air comes out.
