A new water pump is part of the regular 100,000 km service on most non performance cars. A turbo engine that sees higher temps like the N54 will cook water pumps quicker.

It is a common part and most BMW dealers or BMW Sydney warehouse will have in stock.

Get it to a dealer or Indy shop (such as Advan) as may be another issue and your water pump could be fine.

Anyone know of any decent places in the inner west? Would like to go to Advan but if there is somewhere I can drive to it would save a lot of hassle.

your water temp should never go above 120 celcius. the warning light triggers at 120 and i think the red light comes on at 125, or at least thats when you lose power.

having just had mine done locally, i paid considerably more in parts than dacks quote of 500ish so if you have another car you can use you should probably order it in from overseas yourself. Dan@unitedbmw is my preferred dealer on the forums for OEM parts.

P7X 's 110' to 120' was quoting oil temps. Which is normal temp range, really. I know on my car(US specs in Germany) I seldom go over 250' F(half way middle of gauge) and once in a while maybe see 258' F on a really hot german summer day of 28' C!

You know our 135i's do not have a water temp gauge - right.

My water pump was $2500 installed at the dealer. At 60,000kms. Warranty fixed it.

The car shuts itself down to prevent any further damage to other components. So u won't be damaging anything else if it blows.

The coolant tank ws empty most likely bc the coolant system pressure was so high/hot. Inside the cap there is a safety valve that will puke the coolant out of when pressure gets too high.

HAVE YOUR CAR TOWED to a dealer or repair shop. You most likely need a new waterpump and thermostat. IF you do it yourself you are looking at about $550 in parts. There are a few DIY's here too, its not that hard of a job - so people say. AT the dealer its around a $1,200 repair.
I have seen the pumps on bmrautowerkes site.

Well thats a laugh:

Pump, bolts and thermostat from the US in 1-3 days - $600

Pump only from BMR - $627 - not too bad

1st BMW dealer $1090 pump only

2nd BMW dealer $ 1850 pump only!

They didn't end up giving me an amount.

Actually one of them said $230 an hour and his advice was to just get a normal mechanic to do it.

I have ordered from the US and will do myself unless I can get someone to do it for a reasonable price.

OK, so my parts arrived and I'm going to spend tomorrow replacing the pump and thermostat.

Does everyone think BMW coolant is the best way to go or something like MoCool from Advan?

Just an update, I did the pump and thermostat yesterday in under 3 hours, really wasn't too bad. A bit fiddly but nothing anyone with mechanical knowledge could do it I'm sure.

Total cost was around $600.

Sorry to bring up an old thread. Have anyone claim their waterpump failure under premium selection?

No, but I did have my water pump go unexpectedly at 52615 kms a few months back. Repair from Peter Mabey (indy BMW specialist) incl. thermostat and coolant was $1765.91 ex GST.

Ouch!

I've just hit 85k and with summer not too far off I'm considering doing this at the next service as a preventative measure rather than be stranded somewhere.

I've found the pump and thermostat for $550 (US) delivered to Australia. And expecting 2 - 3 hours install..

Ouch Gtapper I feel for you .

The good news for me is that the premium selection covers the waterpump BUT it does not cover the thermostat gasket and coolant. They said you should change it all one go as preventive measure so it wwill cost me about $300 But still better than paying $1700+++

Well, there's labor in that "repair" figure - total of $613 (ex GST) of effort. Parts only (pump, thermostat, coolant, pump and bleed screws) portion by itself comes to $1150 ex GST.

Greg from there has always been thorough and straight up. He was fairly certain from the start what the likely root cause was when it died on me out of the blue, plus he was able to get it sorted for me in <1 day.
