Overheating E83 2006 X3

Hi everyone,

I've been using this forum as a primary resource for some time for ideas about my 2006 BMW X3. Now I need some help.

Over the last month, my X3 has overheated a few times, while stuck in low traffic. My mechanic seems a bit lost as to what is happening.

To date, we've have changed the Coolant Temperature Censor, Radiator Fan, Thermostat.

The car runs well otherwise, on long trips there is now overheating, it only seems to happen when in slow stop and go traffic. Actually, I have had it happen to my at the same highway exchange ramp 3 times in the last month.

The radiator fan seems to be working, and there no codes showing up.

My only thought now is that it may be the water pump.

Could be.

Does it loose fluid? If so, expansion tank and hoses.

Also check, through the grille, to make sure there isn't effluent blocking airflow into the radiator.
