THE TEMPERTURE GAUGE OSCILATES BETWEEN 1/4 AND 1/2. IS THIS NORMAL OR COULD IT BE A PROBLEM?

2004 BMW 320D

The oscilating doesnt seem to be related to strain on engine.

All the time? Or just after engine warms up? May be air in system or an electrical/gauge/sender/thermostat problem.

All the time. Seems to take its time to warm up and then randomly drops down to 1/4 and back

I'd try thermostat first.

This is a car I will be buying, could this be related to any major engine problems?
