In Reply to: Does bad water pump give warning when going bad? posted by Paranoid on June 12, 2000 at 20:05:02:
: Or does it just blow suddenly?
: I have a 9/95 production, and after reading a recent message from someone with a 10/95 with a confirmed plastic impellar, it did wonder to fuel my paranoia... pumpafobia?
: What really worries me is that it will blow without warning and require towing or something.
: Do these pumps usually provide any warning that they're going to blow?
: Also, is there any way that BMW NA (or other) can determine for a fact if my car has the plastic impellar based on my VIN#? Shouldn't BMW have a record of exactly which VIN was last to be loaded with plastic?
