Head gaskets don't usually fail unless there is a reason. Most likely the engine overheated or something else happened to cause the head to warp. If that is the case you will need to solve the REASON for the gasket failure.Pull the head then take it to a machine shop to have it resurfaced. They will make the head surface flat again and it can be re-installed without risk of it failing again immediately.

While you have the head apart, you should have the valves and guides reconditioned. Once you have gone to all of that troule, you might as well rebuild the entire engine, since it isn't that much additional effort and expense to do the whole thing.

To replace the thermostat on a 1988 535i, first locate the top radiator hose and remove the end connected to the motor. Take out the old thermostat and use gasket cleaner to remove the old gasket. Then replace the gasket and thermostat exactly as it was when it came out. Tighten up the radiator hose over the thermostat.

Anyway, it is located in the lowerr radiator house, at the engine, when the engine is cold drain the coolant, remove the lower hose, pop out the thermostat, remove gasket, clean surface and replace. Fill with coolant, let it get warm, then add more coolant when the new thermotat opens up.
