    Hey, I just finished doing a valve cover gasket job, spark plugs and oil change... All good until I go riding and there is 0 boost. I look over the vacuum hoses, replace a few that look suspicious but no difference. Thinking thru the process I recall shorting the + pole of the battery in...

  3. Fuel pump isn't priming when cold

    E46 (1999 - 2006)
    I recently purchased a 2000 328i 5 speed with 170,000 miles. I am not sure if the fuel pump has been replaced by any of the previous owners. The car is suffering from a no start condition in the mornings and after it has sat for long enough to cool down. After I turn the ignition to position 2...
  4. 2008 e90 - How do I relieve the fuel pressure?

    E90/E91/E92/E93 (2006 - 2013)
    I have searched online and learned about the schrader valve on the fuel rail. My question is how much fuel is going to come out when i press the valve? Will a towel or rag be enough to catch it all or is there another method? I am trying to repair a hair line crack in the top of my fuel...

  7. Fuel pressure test

    E46 (1999 - 2006)
    Hey guys, today I decided to test my fuel pressure to maybe point me in the right direction with some cold start bogging. My car, though it hasn't done it in a long while, only stalled maybe twice but would come really close to stalling all the other times it did this bogging at startup. The car...
