I had water pump and coolant reservoir replaced but it still leaks antifreeze periodically. Is this possibly also the reason my AC/heater doesnt blow anymore now?
Had vehicle inspected before a thousand mile trip . Mechanic completed a test which found the water pump needed replacing,
Furthermore, the reservoir , coolant is leaking. Indication light is on Car is over heating and driving in lower gears.
Water pump failed and car overheated. Mechanic replaced waterpump and coolant; cost $1,000
Actually, my water pump wasn't pumping enough fluid to cool the engine.. I replaced the pump, and found the impeller was plastic, and had broken loose from the shaft. Not long after that I began getting low coolant warning, and had to replace the expansion tank, due to leaking. Evidently these are known issues for the 325i.
Coolant loss leaking pump replaced pump. you dont have this job on your site.
The coolant system is leaking. There are coolant everywhere around the engine. The temperature warning light comes on and goes from yellow to red.
Paid an arm and leg for the repair and replacement, it happened while driving to Vegas :(.
Both the thermostat and water pump were replaced before the car hit 100,000 miles.
