The wife's 318i seems to break down at least once or twice a year. This time
the thing overheated. I was praying to the BMW gods that it was just an old
thermostat and that it would be a cheap fix. Well, once again the gods weren't
listening. Turns out, from what the mechanic tells us, to be a break in the plastic
coolant flange. To fix it will involve replacing the flange, the water pump, and all
the blelts and pulleys. Total $1081.00. GRRRRRRRR!!! Anyone else experienced this
That is way too much.
A Water Pump is like $40
A T Stat is like $15
Radiator $200 (At the most)
New Belts $50 (At the Most)
New Water Pump Pulley $35 (Dealer)
That is no where near 1K though.
