BMW N52 N54 Electric Water Pump Repair

BMW N52 N54 Electric Water Pump Repair

Gone are the days of a engine belt driven water pump on late model BMW's. The BMW engines inline 6 cylinder N51 N52 N54 N55 are equipped with electric water pump. This allows the DME to fully control and modulate the coolant flow through the engine without dependency on RPM. This electric design allows for engine power output efficiency and balanced cooling responsibilities for the engine. More cooling power is required on demand for turbocharged engines such as the E90 E60 N54/N55 vehicles. Failing Water Pump Warning Signs The electric water pump tends to fail after 50,000 miles and the early warning signs are the yellow engine temperature light which will then turn red when the car is overheating. The heat will no longer blow hot due to low coolant circulation and the coolant level is below minimum. Once the water pump fails the car will enter fail safe mode to prevent engine damage. The common fault codes stored in the DME are 2E82 Electric ... read more

BMW N54 Walnut Blasting

BMW N54 Walnut Blasting

What is Walnut Blasting? Walnut blasting is the process of blasting pressurized, crushed walnut shells onto the intake valves and in the cylinder on direct injection engines. This procedure is designed to remove carbon deposits which accumulate over time from blow-by gases, carbonized fuel, and oil on the intake valves and intake ports of the cylinder head. When the valves become heavily carbonated, the engine may exhibit symptoms such as misfire, rough idle, and lack of power, which is a result of the intake valves not being able to close properly. Service Benefits With a clean running engine, power will be restored with a more responsive throttle and allow for an increase in fuel economy. We recommend to have this service performed every 30,000 miles on your BMW equipped with N54 and N55 engines, available on the 135i, 335i and 535i. This service is more involved on V8 motors such as N63 and diesel motors M57, N57 which requires a mor ... read more
