1991 BMW 735iL Q&A

1991 BMW 735iL Question: Overheating

Car overheats with no signs of flowing liquid in upper or lower hoses. No signs of any leaks, and I've removed the thermostatic. Still no flow. -
Answer 1
If there is no pressure and no circulation, it is a possible water pump problem. Zee -
Answer 2
Not sure if these cars have a plastic impeller on the water pump like other BMW, some Ford engines, some Jaguar and Audi/VW engines, The impeller fails and slips on the water pump shaft, car overheats and runs hot due to poor circulation. Call a local BMW specialty shop and ask them have they seen the water pumps fail on that model/year, they may say "sure we see it all the time!" -
