SOURCE: bmw 318ti over heating still
i agree water pump , but thermostat can go bad very fast some times they will have a defect when u buy them for that you can do a simple test ,,,put the thermostat in boiling water if it expands that means its working

It could be several reasons...1. make sure you dont have to bleed the coolant system, on some cars you have too, because there is air in the system, and the car will overheat..2. Your waterpump maybe bad also..3. Double check your coolant temp sensor, and or coolant temp switch..maybe faulty..4. Check your radiator cap...seal could be bad, and not sealing correctly...Question..How long does it take before it overheats...and are you getting any white or grey smoke out of the tailpipe? If so, then your head gasket is blown...Goodluck

2006 bmw 530xi have a electric water pump (next to the thermostat). Common to go bad. There should be no heat in the car and "overheating" pops up. Electric water pump $495.00
