    Hi everyone. M43B18 engine, I have a really annoying issue. First start of the day is just fine, starts perfectly. After driving it (doesn't matter for how long) the car won't start, starter works but it's not turning the engine. Today I had a weird incident: drove for 20min, turned off the...
  2. F30 / F31 / F32 / F33 / F34 / F36 (2012 - current)
    So last night I was driving home and noticed something strange... when I accelerate relatively heavily my fuel gauge goes nuts. The needle will bounce from 3/4 to empty, sit at E for a few seconds then bounce back to where it should be. During normal driving it's fine. Also noticed just now that...

    I recently replaced the fuel filter w/pressure regulator on my 2004 BMW X3. Ever since replacing the filter, the fuel guage is no longer working. My fuel gauge always worked well before and I had no issues with it. As soon as I changed the fuel filter, it stopped working. The low fuel light...

    I've turned one problem into two... The fuel gauge would only indicate half full with a full tank. When I'd used half the gauge would indicate empty and the fuel light would come on. It was annoying, but but in retrospect I could have lived with it. I tried to test/diagnose it, involving...

    Greetings everyone! I am a new e39 owner (540iA) and my instrument cluster is not working properly. When I turn the car on, the fuel gauge will jump around a bit, the tachometer will jump up a bit, then slowly flick back down, and the speedometer won't read. I have heard the fix about the wheel...

    My 328i fuel gauge went to zero whilst driving, then flicked back to show fuel, then after a few seconds went back to zero and has stayed there ever since, but the low fuel light is lit on the gauge. Is this a gauge problem or sender bust or a corroded earth bad connection? HELP it's...

    I have a 2003 330i and lately the fuel gauge has been going down pretty quickly overall. At times when starting the car the gauge will increase or lose gas by an 1/8Th of a tank, fluctuating all the time. I have just replaced the fuel filter and disa valve. The car is performing fine. Can...

    Hi, I just got a 2004 318Ci M-Sport (very happy) but there is a problem with the fuel gauge. The tank is full but the dial doesn`t go above half way. It does go down with use but haven`t seen it go past half way yet. Console test 2 makes all the dials do a funny dance, so I hope I`m right to...

    Hi everyone! Thanks for the previous threads on fuel gauge problems. I wasn't able to find something quite similar enough to my problem, so I'm going to post a new thread. I have a 325i with the M54 engine. My car runs normally until I hit a quarter tank left, at which point it seems I have run...
