Any help here would be most appreciated.
I just bought an 1995 325i about 2 weeks ago, last week the water pump failed drastically, taking out the radiator and thermostat too. I ordered the E36 3 Series Cooling System Overhaul Kit from Bimmerworld.com. In preparation for the kit, I took out the radiator, water pump and thermostat.
The Question is…. In all the parts I have removed; throughout the radiator, in the thermo, and most definitely in the water pump housing, are little pieces of impeller blade. Do I have to worry about chunks of blade in the block? Is there a special way (other than your standard coolant flush) to get these little guys out?
Again any help would be great
