Inspect the wires for melted insulation. Replace the thermostat. Tensioner missing? What does that mean?

Inspect for bad wiring or maybe you will need to replace the sensor. Yes it will effect the emissions.

Exhaust manifold. If you dont know what you are doing in this repair, I strongly recommend you seek out someone with BMW experience. The car is expensive to own and maintain. If you cannot afford to do so, I think you might consider what your priorities are.
