Can a fuel pump not work when it is below freezing?

I have a 2002 X5. It starts & runs fine when the weather is above freezing. Lately, when the weather gets very cold, it cranks but will not turn over. As soon as the weather warms, it starts right up. The dealer wants to replace the fuel pump & filter. Any thoughts?

Welcome to Bimmerfest! I've moved your question over to the E53 X5 forum. This is the right place to ask questions about your BMW. Hopefully one of our E53 owners will jump in and give you some advice.

Good luck,
Tim

Thank you again Tim. I am no mechanic, and much of this is difficult for me to digest, but this is a great thread. Reviewing it will certainly make it much easier to understand the problem, and hopefully find the correct solution.

One of the big take aways from that thread was how he had the fuel pressure checked at the rail which showed he didn't need a fuel pump. Could be a good place to start. If you're not doing it yourself find a good independent service shop to help you out.
