The front seats of my 1989 BMW 525i are damaged. Can I use seats from a 1995 BMW 525i as replacements?

I just bought a 1989 bmw 525i. It was running fine until it died at a stop light.it had overheated so badly, the insulation is gone off the inside of the hood. now it won't start. what could be wrong? Thank you very much

car has 280k miles but the engine was changed and then about 70k the head was replaced with a rebuilt head. I have been driving back and forth to Atlantic City a lot in the last couple of months and it has been running fine, I checked my fuel efficiency and its been around 21mpg, I do have an oil leak but I monitor and add oil when necessary, any ideas what may have happened I had it towed to my house this happened last night 8-9-13 and haven't talked to a mechanic yet

turned up idle didn't help

How can I install the tensioner spring back in place?
