Water Pump Super Kits for E30

Is your car starting to run hot? Over time, the bearings in the water pump begin to wear, causing them to eventually fail and seize the water pump. This kit includes everything you need to replace your old tired water pump with a brand new unit. This kit for the E30 even includes a new timing belt, tensioner, and spring for those of you with a 6 cylinder model. It's highly recommended you replace the timing belt at the same time, so we have included it for you! Here's what the kit includes:
  • New Water Pump and Gasket
  • New Thermostat and Gasket
  • New Fan Clutch
  • New Radiator Mounts
  • New Radiator Cap
  • Fan Clutch Tool and Counter Holder
  • New Upper and Lower Radiator Hoses
  • 12 oz. Redline Water Wetter Corrosion Treatment
  • New Timing Belt (6 Cylinder Cars)
  • New Timing Belt Tensioner and Spring (6 Cylinder Cars)
  • New Timing Belt Service Decal (6 Cylinder Cars)
  • Cam Flange O-Ring (6 Cylinder Cars)
  • Cam/Intermediate Shaft Seals (6 Cylinder Cars)

Water Pumps

Is your car starting to run a little hot? Is it overheating while sitting at idle? It's possible you may need to replace your water pump. An easy way to check your water pump is to look underneath the car and check for water seepage out of the pump. This means that water is leaking past the bearing and seals, indicating the pump is on its way out. Another way to check is to squeeze and hold the upper radiator hose for a few seconds (CAUTION: the hose may be hot) while the car is running. If you feel no pressure building up, it is a sign that water is not circulating and the pump may be bad. These units are brand new, not rebuilt.

Water Pump Gaskets

If you are finding puddles of water under your car the water pump gasket may be going. Water pump gaskets assist in sealing the water pump to the engine block. These gaskets work under extreme heat and pressure. They should be inspected for drying out and leaking when inspecting the cooling system.

Coolant Thermostats

Is your car's temperature too hot or cold? A coolant thermostat allows the coolant to circulate when the engine has reached a predetermined temperature. It should close when the engine is cold to allow it to warm up faster. Thermostats can fail and should be inspected for corrosion when servicing the cooling system. Thermostats come in different temperature settings for different climates.
