fuel tank

  1. 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...
  2. X5 E70 (2007 - 2013)
    Hi Folks Can anyone tell me what this breather is called on the X5 E70 (UK no carbon canister) diesel fuel tank in GREEN and can it be accessed from the back seat of the car? Having a problem with fuel filling where the garage fuel pump keeps cutting out. Driving me crazy. Many thanks.
  3. 7 Series - E38 (1995 - 2001)
    The problem is the transfer of the fuel from the one side of the tank to the other. When the left side is drained, the car stops, while the right side has over 25 litres. The suction pump in the tank has been changed and the fuel sensors were checked, both working fine. The pump, which should...
  4. E60 / E61 (2004 - 2010)
    Hi, I'm looking for help trying to figure out a problem I've had for a while now: My 525i E60 N52 180,00kms is running out of gas at 1/4 tank. I've checked a few things like: 1- when i have around 1/4 gas left it ALL accumulates on the drivers side of the fuel tank, which is supposed to be the...
  5. E60 / E61 (2004 - 2010)
    2009 BMW 535i So, I discovered that during a different mechanical issue, there is evidence that gasoline is leaking from the top of my fuel tank on the (left) drivers side of the vehicle. As the car sits parked, I can smell the faint odor of gasoline. I suspect that the problem is on top of the...
  6. E30 (1982 - 1993)
    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...
  7. E46 (1999 - 2006)
    These past couple months I've been having issues with my 328ci (manual transmission). It started off with my car working perfectly fine until one day completely turning off on me out of no where. The car felt fine, it ran and sounded perfect besides it randomly turning off. Some days it would...
  8. E39 (1997 - 2003)
    My ride is ready to start. I found out from the previous owner that the FULL tank of gas has been there for about 1 year:eek:! I unhooked the fuel line right before the fuel filter on the left of the car. the only way I was able to drain the fuel is to turn the key on and off over and over. The...
  9. E36/7 Z3 (1996-2002)
    I have a 2000 Z3 which I recently acquired. I noticed an infrequent muffled clunk coming from what appeared to be behind my passenger seat ( its a RHD - Australian delivered car). I checked all the usuals .... bottle of wine rolling around in the boot (no such luck) etc. Then I feared...

    A very trivial item, but I note there's a connector hole in my gas cap for a missing plastic retainer cord. Has anyone had any experience replacing this item? Thanks. Jerry 2001 Z3 2.5i 2000 GMC 1500 conversion van 2007 SAAB 9-3

  13. E46 (1999 - 2006)
    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...
