    My fuel pump does not prime when i turn on ignition and does not pump fuel (checked the valve on the fuel rail after cranking). I bought a used one and still nothing. Checked all fuses and every one of them were completely fine but changed them anyway. Suddenly it starts right up but dies...

    Hey Fanatics, I purchased THIS OE-brand (VDO) fuel pump for my 1999 328i. The female electrical connector on the new pump does not match the male pins on the car's wiring harness. This is really perplexing because the part number shows interchangeable on RealOEM's site, the vendor I purchased...

    Got a real doozy for y'all. I got 15 codes. A couple are trans codes, as I am working on the transmission, and have the harness disconnected. One is an o2 sensor code. (Replacing them this weekend) The other codes are Misfire/Fuel Cut-Off codes. They're attached below. I'm suspecting fuel...

    Hi all, long time no post. I have basically parked the car for the last couple years but dusting it off and getting back into fixing it up. Pretty much limited driving the car over the last couple years as I had to have the drive shaft rebuilt as the joints were having issue tearing up the new...

    Yesterday, I installed new rotors and brake pads on my 330i. After lowering the car and taking it for a test drive, I noticed something was wrong. When I turned the car on, it sounded fairly loud especially when I accelerated. The car was also sluggish, and stumbled. I went to go get gas, and it...

    Introduction It took me a long time to understand fuel trims, despite excellent videos by 50skid and excellent posts by JFOJ. I think I have a handle on them now, so I thought I would try to explain them as I understand them, and either help someone and/or get corrected. Here is my shot. Theory...

    2002 330ci 5 speed w/ 205k miles Alright I've got an interesting one today. While almost home from a ~50 mile drive on the interstate, my car suddenly lost all power, and stalled when I pushed the clutch in. I was at about 1/4 tank of gas but it acted like it ran out. I checked the oil, made...

    Hi, can anyone help. I've purchased a new fuel pump by Bosch. I checked part numbers on real oem using the vin and ensured the specific numbers matched yet the new pump is significantly smaller as you can see in the first picture. The car is a 2002 330 ci. My question isn't so much what do I do...

    Hi all. So the fuel sender attached to my fuel pump is malfunctioning. I'm getting the usual symptom of my fuel gage reading completely wrong. I ran the built-in diagnostics at the instrument cluster, and my numbers confirmed this (left unit reporting fuel, right unit reporting a constant 13L...

    Good day! I hope everything finds you well, (brief history 2002 325ci) I've had the car for almost 2.5-3 years, got it at 122k miles, it is now at around 145k miles. When I got the car, I replaced spark plugs (no coils), did complete coolant system refresh, fluids(brake, tran, diff) and lots of...

    Hey guys, I searched the forums already and saw some issues similar to mine but nothing 100% similar. About 4 days ago, I got a P0102 code. I decided to grab some MAF cleaner and hit my MAF up a little bit and clear my code too see if that fixed it. So no biggie there. Following this, about a...

    Hey guys, so last week I returned from a trip and had my car sitting outside for about 2 weeks. When I came back, I turned the car on and saw that the gas gauge was reading empty, but my display had four hash marks. I knew for certain I did not leave my car empty. After getting gas and putting 4...
