I had 3 pumps replaced, Oil Pump, Fuel Pump and Water Pump on my BMW 335XI with 52k on it. Now I have another problem, Cylinder Head Cover Gasket, and the car is shaking as hell. I notified BMW of Norht America and they said there is no recalls on this issues, accept th water pump and batery cable. I believe all the other issues should be racalls.
