  1. E46 (1999 - 2006)
    Hey guys (And gals) I am new to the forum and just purchased an E46 325CI with fuel transfer issues to right side tank. Symptoms: Test 19:6.0 shows no fuel transfer from left to right side and runs out of fuel at 1/4 tank. I replaced the fuel filter (w/ new hoses), fixed vacuum leak on F...

    Hello again! Another issue with my 2003 330Ci (Sure glad I've registered on the forum), when taking apart the car and removing the oil pan, what seem to be a vacuum line from a fuel filter fell off. Which means it probably wasn't properly attached and needed to be fixed anyway. A bit of a...

    Hey guys. I have a 1987 325ES w/ manual transmission and lots of miles. On Christmas eve of last year I was driving down the freeway at about 70 mph when the engine stumbled twice in about 2 minutes. Then it completely lost power. I pulled over and parked on the side of the freeway and tried to...

    I have a 2002 325 that was running but had a MAF code showing. Car was running great until I put a new MAF in, then it started clacking like crazy so I took MAF off. Car ran fine. I figure it needs a smoke test to find a vacuum leak. The problem now is I can only keep it running by shooting...
  7. F10 / F11 (2011 - 2016)
    Hi there. I'm having trouble with my fuel pumps in my e39 520i 2001. I've read all the posts about it and tried just about everything but to no avail. Firstly the car died on the road, so checked and fuel pump was dead, so got a used one and fitted it. It worked fine for a few weeks and ran...

    Hey guys, I have a new issue with the my x5 35d 2009, I have the check engine light come on with the code p0087. Sometimes it puts me into limp mode without really being in it because I can still rev up to 4000rpm, and some other times, it gives a "bang" and the car shuts down drastically. I...

    I have surfed these forums pretty extensively aiming to fix my 2003 BMW 325i. However, unfortunately I have been unsuccessful up to this point. I am desperate at this point for any useful advice on things I could try to get her running again. For some context as to the urgency of this issue, I...

    Hello all, I have a 1987 325is that had a rusty tank so I picked up a clean tank from a 1989 325i. I am running into a major problem figuring out where the lines need to be re routed. The early model pump has two metal inputs on the top of it, one to a hose that leads to the filter I believe...

    Hey! Kind of a new learner about cars so bare with me, and worth naming that im from sweden so i excuse any grammatical errors. But to the point: i've been working on a problem for two weeks now without any solution, and i've been looking for answeres everywhere all över the net without any...
  12. X3 F25 (2011 - 2017)
    Hi, I am confused about when the diesel fuel filter has to be replaced on an F25 20d. One place it states every 2nd oil change and another at Inspection II. Does the car tell me when an Inspection II is due? and what is the real world recommendation for replacing the fuel filter? Thanks
  13. E36/7 Z3 (1996-2002)
    I changed my fuel filter today. Using online advice, I pulled the fuel pump fuse while the engine was running to relieve the pressure in the lines. When I reinstalled the fuse and turned the ignition, the engine wouldn't start. My OBD II codes came up Trouble Code: P1451 - (Manufacturer...

  15. E85 / E86 Z4 (2003-2008)
    I have a 2007 Z4 Automatic It has 107,000 miles on it. It was maintained under Warrantee until about 87,000. I am about to do my 1st break job and figured I might has well ask what other maintenance I should do. No idea if the fuel filter was ever replaced. Should I do it? Is there an...

    Ok, I'm back again with my problematic 1996 328is. The other day I was driving like normal, and suddenly the car started hesitating and losing power(gas on it, and it would just sputter) so I pulled off the road, shut the car off and peeked under the hood. Everything looked normal so I decided...

    Hey, so I'm new to bmw's. just bought an 02 325i, had some maintenance that needed to be done right away, one of which was the fuel filter, pulled the fuse and try ed to clear the line as much as possible, got under there and took off the brace, pulled one of the lines. And I'm not sure if this...

    Ok, so I'm new to working on BMW cars. I used to go to a mechanic, and lately I have grown not to trust his opinion. I am having a problem with my car starting, and running. I have a 2002 325CI. We have checked all the fuses and relays first, those are all good, then we tested the outlet valve...
  19. E24 (1976 - 1989)
    I recently acquired a1982 633 CSi that is 95 percent original with 95K miles. The only major repair that I am aware of is a clutch cylinder replacement about 1K ago. I drove the car from So Cal to Nor Cal a few days ago and it seemed to run fine until the third fill up when it would not start...
  20. X3 E83 (2004 - 2010)
    I have an X3 with 101Kmiles. Bought it with 82K. Over time I have noticed a slight hesitation under load. It was so minor I ignored it but recently it became obvious something is wrong. Then the Service engine light came on and the car barely made it home one day my wife was driving it. After a...
