  1. General BMW Questions
    Hello all, I apologize for asking this question, as it has already probably been answered and I know repeat questions irritate a lot of you veteran forum users, but I couldn't find an answer even when using advanced search and being very specific. What is the standard fuel pump flow rate for...
  2. E36 (1991 - 1999)
    I’ve owned my e36 for over 2 years and it’s always had unbearable gas fumes if I fill it above 8 gallons, I dont really know where to start relative to the evap system. I’ve inspected the fuel lines under the car and the fuel filler hose, and also I’ve done the fuel pump and filter. Anyone have...
  3. F10 / F11 (2011 - 2016)
    Hey all: I've been enjoying a headache-free life with my 2012 528i until about last month. I was running some errands about a month ago when my car decided to go into limp mode and the fuel system error came up on my iDrive. Checked the code, P142E. The car would absolutely not start after...
  4. X3 E83 (2004 - 2010)
    2006 BMW X3 3.0 Throwing codes p0171 and p0174 band 1 and 2 are too lean. I ran live diagnostics on the car while driving. The O2 Bank 1 and 2 sensors short term fuel trim is showing at a constant 92%. The data also says the fuel system is maintaining an open loop on system b. Why wouldn't the...
  5. E30 (1982 - 1993)
    I am working on a '88 325is that has been stored about 5 years (covered, thankfully). I'm not getting any fuel to the fuel block. The relays appear good, and the fuse is good. Remaining electrical seems OK (getting spark, guages work, etc.) I have continuity from the fuse to the pump, but only...

    anyone got a picture of their 98 740il intake plenum? I need to see how deep the injectors seat. mine seem to sit way at the upper edge. the injector body has a beveled edge that should sit down against the hole in the plenum. my injectors sit so high i can see the yellow plastic ring above the...
  7. E30 (1982 - 1993)
    Hey guys/gals, I'm looking to change my fuel pump/filter on my 1988 325e and was wondering what aftermarket parts would be recommended? Not looking for anything special. Just something to get my car running again. Also, I'm not 100% sure its the fuel pump/filter that crapped out but it...
  8. E39 (1997 - 2003)
    Hello, I am new the forum but not new to BMW's. Recently my 1999 BMW 528i with 196k-miles on the clock developed a new issue: One day, in the morning, it wouldn't start-- cranked but no fire. Battery was fine, starter was fine, as was the alternator. I was about 100-miles away from home so I...
  9. E36/7 Z3 (1996-2002)
    Hi guys, my Z3 is about to go to the shop for some work on the suspension. I live in Mexico so the best place to find parts is the BMW dealer; but it is quite expensive, I tried autozone mexico; I got both control arm bushing there (Duralast) for around USD$9, long story short they only lasted...
  10. E30 (1982 - 1993)
    1987 BMW 325e automatic transmission. Was given this car about 4 months ago. Since the weather has gotten cold, the car is difficult to start (usually takes 5-10 secons to start, sometimes I have to turn the key off, wait a few seconds, and recrank.). Idles a little rough for a few minutes...

  12. E39 (1997 - 2003)
    I think i screwed something up. Yesterday I attempted to start my with the key as normal and my hand slipped; sort of "bumping the ignition". I tried to turn the key again to start and the ignition was locked. I turned the key all the way back and attemped to start again. The car started and...
