Report: Water Pump May Develop Coolant Leak
BMW 328i Problem
The low coolant light may illuminate and/or the engine may overheat as a result of a coolant leak from the water pump. The leaking pump will require replacement and the entire cooling system should be inspected for leaks as it is not uncommon to find multiple leaks on higher mileage vehicles.
Overheating can cause severe engine damage. If the engine begins to overheat it is recommended to stop at the first available location and have your vehicle towed to a repair shop.

Was driving on the highway when the vehicle warned me engine components were over heating. Pulled over and had the vehicle towed to dealership. Was told Thermostat, water pump & coolant expansion tank need to be replaced. $1700+ FML
