    Hey everyone, just got this 2004 330Ci in December and it finally broke down on me. Pretty sure the water pump failed but just wanted to get a second opinion if you guys think anything else is wrong with it.

    So I recently replaced the water pump on my 330i after dinding out the last one was shot, and everything turned out fine. I've been watching it closely and have seen nothing until this last week. When I start the car in the morning, some coolant drips (slowly) near the front of the engine, under...

    I just bought my 325i and when i plugged in my scan tool while driving I noticed that my engine was at 99C and my radiator was at 27C. I tried to bleed the system with some distilled water just to see if that was the issue but I don't believe that it is. The radiator stayed stone cold the...

    Hey guys, Does our forum have a sponsor that can help give a discount on an electric water pump? I"m afraid mine is starting to fail. Or can someone point me to where I can get a reasonably priced one? Need one asap. Thanks!

  18. General E46 Forum
    So the other day I posted that all my coolant flew out of my expansion tank on the way home the other night. I re bleed the system, but I didn't add any more antifreeze. Last night it was extremely cold with the wind chill, went to start my car and the alternator was struggling. I hooked it up...

    Yesterday my cooling pump ceased up randomly and ripped apart most of the plastic components in the engine compartment due to the serpentine belt snapping off and destroying the cooling fan and the fan shroud and causing the cooling fan to cease as well. Has anyone else ever had to deal with...
