Engine heating up

I drove the car probably 2-3 miles and the engine started heating up and car missing not drivable so without further driving I pulled over. Service Engine soon light came on.This is my first post in X3 section as I recently acquired "08 X3 M package with 78k miles. Thx for the input.

Sounds like your water pump failed.

Do not drive the car. You risk blowing the head gasket.

Get it towed.

I still say water pump. The computer went into limp-home mode, and caused the faults you are seeing.
