I imagine that the cooling circuit is getting overpressure and the drain plug pops out. I have now plugged in my battery charger to leave my car charging overnight to see if maybe my battery was too low on juice to run the pump properly and try again in the morning. Well, it will go back to the dealership tomorrow. April 17, 2017 Followup from the Pelican Staff: I would assume the coolant pump and thermostat should be replaced. Another symptom is when I check my car battery. And if the electronics are at fault, there is no way to rebuild or repair it. If a fault or excessive temperature is reached, the dash cluster will display a yellow or red water temp icon depending on the severity of the condition.
I believe the E90 pumps all have plastic impellers. If it weren't for the trip I'd be tempted to see how long it would go. Would a bad tstat stop the car from running the bleeding procedure? Anyway, sorry about your pump. The point is, it's all nuts and bolts. I completed a system pressure test and passed.
If you remove the water pump from your E90 and plan on reinstalling it, store it with coolant inside, otherwise it will corrode and fail shortly after reinstalling it. Repair shop ran diagnostics and unfortunately it wasn't the quicker fix of the thermostat as I thought it was going to be. Thank you May 24, 2018 Followup from the Pelican Staff: Are any fault codes stored? The big one going to stat needed a bit of force to shift though. I think some do go at much lower mileage. Take care to note the way the electrical connection clips work by looking at the new parts in your eEuro kit.
This can include reducing power output and activating 'limp mode'. If you are willing to put in the time, and take a few scratches and busted knuckles, do it one step at a time and you can do it. I can also feel fluid surging through the upper and lower hoses. Then determine which components on that circuit is causing the draw You can isolate by removing fuses. Was this review helpful to you? Give our parts specialists a call at 1-888-280-7799. I was wondering if there is a parts , that I can buy the wire group or should I just splice wires into the connector.
Can i drive the vehicle to him for a check up without damaging the engine? The water pump on the N54 engine has more cooling responsibilities than ever before. Remove all of the under paneling and drain the coolant from the radiator. Water pump can then be taken out. A proper coolant bleeding procedure must be followed to get any trapped air out of the cooling system prior to starting the car. Thought it might be software reset issue, just drove off anyway.
Why not upgrade when you're due for a replacement? If the original item or suitable replacement part is not available, then this warranty is void. Now you will need to disconnect the two hoses at the back of the thermostat. So I'm guessing it's insufficient ground due to the wires getting old from heat cycling and building resistance. Each time I have tested pressure on a vehicle I had to make the adapters. After performing any service work requiring draining of the coolant, the system must be bled to ensure that there are no air pockets present. February 27, 2016 Followup from the Pelican Staff: It's hard for me to comment without knowing the problem, fault codes and part name they suggested. Number two is also common on this car.
Check if the hoses are both warm and the coolant is flowing. Are there any fault codes? It just not come off at first, and since there was still a fair amount of coolant in the water pump and thermostat, this had to be allowed to drain first, ended up getting pretty soaked in coolant while doing this. I let it cool down and limped it home. Then my fan kicks on high. My dealer rented me a car the weekend prior so I could travel out of town because I wasn't comfortable driving it.
Sounds like an internal switch. I have read online that this is a some what typical failure? Did check the error codes and I have the water pump communication failure. How to avoid a water pump failure in the future? I have not experienced leaks or overheating knock on wood Thanks! Do you hear the pump kick on during the bleeding process? No way I'll be able to sell the car when it doesn't even start. Is this the water pump, or could it be an electronic or wiring problem? However, It is totally okay when the temperature is warmer than around -7 degree ~ -10 degree. October 19, 2015 Followup from the Pelican Staff: it could be a bad pump. I really wish there was a way to get this information. August 24, 2018 Followup from the Pelican Staff: Got it.
But once again I appreciate your constant judgementalism of a personal choice I made. I have so far solved my overheating problem. We only offer parts we know you can trust to perform! More photos for references: Power steering plastic pulley can be open using the T40 Torx key. The 6 cylinder power plants have a few design features to make them more efficient in terms of power, fuel consumption, and emissions. The procedure is the same as the written guide but most of the work can be done from the engine bay as 4cyl variants engine block is shorter. I checked interior heating, and that was cold too.
Quite interested to know what sort of temperatures you see and how it changes based on driving conditions etc. This can be a tough part to change as it is tucked away and behind many components. There does not seem to be any info relating to this car and the job. Sent from BimmerApp mobile app I just replaced the water pump and thermostat on my 2006 325i with 75k miles. April 16, 2018 Followup from the Pelican Staff: It might be. If they fail, it can lead to dangerous overheating issues and potentially leave you on the side of the road with an engine that's now only good for being a large paperweight.
