Shop BMW 335i Replacement Water Pump
Water pumps are centrifugal mechanisms attached to a shaft housed in a metal sheath attached to the very front of your BMW 335i's engine. When you turn on your engine, the shaft inside your water pump begins to rotate and this sends coolant from your radiator into channels in your engine block. Without this coolant, your engine would be at risk for overheating as well as causing standard and electric pump failure. Once it circulates through your engine block, the coolant travels back into the radiator where it cools back down so it can be used to cool your engine again. PartsGeek.com sells replacement water pumps for the BMW 335i.
When your E90 water pump is operating inefficiently, the temperature indicated on your dashboard instrument panel gauge will rise. You may also want to check your BMW 335i water pump fuse. The fuse on most of these vehicles is located in the engine bay fuse box. The fuse box is on the passenger’s side under the filter. Overheated coolant will often cause the seal connecting the water pump to the engine to blow. If this happens, you'll notice coolant leaking into the engine compartment. It would then be a good idea to replace the thermostat as well to keep your BMW E90 overheating at bay.
The new style of BMW N-series 6-cylinder engines N51, N52, N54 and N55 do not use an engine driven water pump like they used to. These newly designed BMW motors are designed with an electrically driven water pump that is mounted separate from the engine.
This new pump style will allow the “engine management system” or (EMS) to control and modulate the coolant flow through the engine better than the engines varying RPM level. While this design surely has some advantages in emissions efficiency and power production the water pumps have been failing in the 40,000 to 50,000 mile and up range.
Parts needed to replace the pump include: water pump, mounting bolts, thermostat, thermostat to water pump hose, hose clamps and BMW coolant.

Research on Water Pump for BMW 335i
When you are occupied with your daily chores, it's possible for you to forget about car servicing. But then, if you are actually concerned about your vehicle's performance and maintenance costs, then routine maintenance is mandatory. Regular servicing includes oil checks, coolant checks, and water pump checks, among the others. Problems identified at the preliminary stage can minimize the chances of car break down that are accompanied with expensive repairs.
What Is a Water Pump?
The water pump is the basic pillar of the cooling system. Its job is to circulate coolant between the radiator and engine so that the latter doesn't get overheated. Within the pump there's a plastic or metal impeller. This impeller has blades using which they push the water via the pump. The basic job of a BMW 335i water pump is to push coolant via the car's radiator, engine block, and hoses to remove excessive engine heat from the system. The coolant, which accumulates between the impeller blades, uses centrifugal force to move outward.
When Does Your BMW 335i Water Pump Needs a Replacement?
Your engine needs a constant flow of coolant from the radiator for its optimal performance. And this flow is maintained by a properly working water pump. With its smooth performance, you can expect your car to maintain a stable operating temperature. On the other hand, if your water pump experiences regular wear and tear, then it can cause engine failure.
Usually water pumps in modern cars like BMW have greater longevity, but then, under no circumstances you can call them indestructible. Similar to other mechanical choices, they too can show warning signs. Some of the major signs that indicate BMW335i water pump problem are as follows:
Leakage from coolant at the front center of the vehicle: Your car water pump consists of several seals and gaskets, which keeps the coolant intact. They also make sure that the coolant is transferred to the engine from the radiator. Over the years, these seals and gaskets will wear out or break o the whole. Due to this, the coolant leaks from the water pump and calls for immediate action.
Overheated Engine: Water pump failure curbs the effective circulation of the coolant. Due to this, the engine generates excessive heat and needs immediate repair or replacement. If the problem is not resolved at the earliest, then it may damage the engine completely.
