Car Information:
BMW/318i
Year: 1997
Engine Size:
Trans: Automatic

Issue / Question:
The car overheated. I changed the thermostat and is still overheating. I realized as well that the fan does not automatically turn on. Do you think the water pump is the problem? I can drive the car right now and can drop it off at your shop unless you guys provide a tow service.

Answer:
Some of the BMW water pumps use a plastic water pump impeller that sometimes brake off and wont pump any coolant. Driving it in this condition can kill the motor.
