BMW recalling 32,000 vehicles equipped with twin turbo motors (N63, S63, and N74) over engine fire issuesThe new BMW twin turbo V8 and V12 motors are pretty sweet. Except when they catch on fire. This recall affects anyone with the N63 and S63 twin turbo V8's or the N74 twin turbo V12 which is used only in the 760 models. The reason for the recall is due to 102 engine water pump failures up to this point and 2 engine bay fires. There is an auxiliary pump used with these engines that helps cool the turbochargers and if it fails this will lead to dramatically increased temperatures. Owners will start being notified next month but why wait, call the dealer to schedule this water pump replacement immediately.
