    Hi All, I need some help, I have a fuel leak behind the rear passenger tire (back-right side of the car). I parked sideways on my driveway last night with the passenger-side at the bottom of the incline. I came back out to the car after about 20 minutes and found fuel puddling under the car and...

    I traced my gasoline odor, which was detectable at the left rear wheel (outside) to a leaking fuel level sensor, located under the rear seat. After replacing the O-ring and quick disconnect line, it still leaked. The car is now in the shop to replace the cracked sensor, at a cost of about $1200...

The strongest concentration seems to be underneath the passenger side fender. The car has been parked for over a day and still...
  7. 7 Series - E65 / E66 (2002 - 2008)
    This has been the most stress full month ever with any of my cars. First I had a high pressure fuel line crack and cause a fire (small burned 3 wires and plastic under wipers). Then I needed new tires all round along with front brakes / wipers / navigation computer / mmi and broken seat heating...

    Hey everyone. So on December 6th, my 318i broke down. Had it towed to my favorite indie shop and they said it was a bad fuel pump. They replaced the pump and I had it back, running the next morning. Sweet. Since then I've been noticing a strong fuel smell anytime after I fill up the tank...
  9. E36 (1991 - 1999)
    I started to have heavy fuel smell inside the car. I tought that it might be on of the fuel lines on the tank loose or rotten. Well when I opened the panel under the passenger seats there was a pool of fuel on top of the leftside fuel tank. The lines looked ok and the lid to the tank look...
