When I put mine back together, I saw it and thought I had forgot to plug it in. Have a bucket or plastic bin inside the vehicle with you. Could that cause the code and maybe cause too much pressure somewhere and pop the regulator housing? My car has just broken the 70K barrier so will watch how you get on, especially if you decide the diff and transmission fluid changes. Figure 11 Align tab with fuel tank green arrow and press fuel pump module into tank. For the shift fault, this could be a slip caused by low fluid or low pressure. I think a loss of suction to the pump would cause a low output pressure and throw an error.
Check fuel pressure, volume and quality. A guy at AutoZone, with a code reader, gave me the code P0440, Evaporation Emission System. Cleared code with scan tool, and sprayed silicone on gas cap sealing rubber. Gaskets are always a good idea and since you are going to have the engine basically apart to replace the valve cover gasket, I would look at all the rubber seals and plastic tubing to see they are in good condition as well. Then attach lower fuel lines to fuel pump module.
They can figure out what part or repair kit you need. It's located under the wheel liner on the rear passenger side of the car. June 5, 2017 Followup from the Pelican Staff: This can be due to a stuck open purge solenoid, but you should have a fault code indicating that. I suspect that fuel is somehow getting into the pump and causing the failure. If i can add gas without it cutting off, then I need to clear the vent line? After topping it off, I pulled the back seat and looked under the left access panel fuel filter and there was no spillage.
It is located in the drivers rear fender well. If the connector is not fully seated it places side pressure on the retaining clip preventing it from flexing into the release position. If I blow air into larger one you can hear it in gas fill tube but then fuel runs out of it. October 17, 2018 Followup from the Pelican Staff: Got it, thanks. Proper fluid is always the first defense.
July 1, 2016 Followup from the Pelican Staff: This is likely a leak at the top of the tank. Yorgi's list will keep you busy for a while! If we get a chance to perform the procedure, we will be sure to document it. October 16, 2018 Followup from the Pelican Staff: Reattached the disconnected hoses. Just started a new 9-5 job so I probably will be posting a lot less frequently these days. Do not drive with or work around leaking fuel. Once you figure out what is missing, it will be easier to diagnose.
I would inspect the lines and see where the fuel is coming from. I guess now tank breather valve in engine bay is next point to look at. Unless it has caused a major vacuum leak. On the current pump, there is a rubber piece that you will need to wiggle off with a flathead screwdriver to use on between the canister and new pump, but it makes sense when you see it. Check if the vent is plugged before you replace anything. Not realizing this until I already pulled my original ones off, I took an educated guess considering the new white return line is slightly longer and installed it on the farther away position from the re-pumping line the one with the retaining clip. How can I access these other connections.
Comments and Suggestions: Mike Comments: 1994 318I fuel pump is on the passenger side? After changing it started up and ran for a week and is now doing the same thing. Apparently i bought this used car like this just 2 months ago thank you for the help! Was this review helpful to you? That may be you issue. Once hose has bottomed out, pump fuel out of fuel tank into a suitable storage container. Thank you March 22, 2017 Followup from the Pelican Staff: The article you commented on shows the location. One question, is the largest and widest hose supposed to plug into anything? I have a 2007 328i.
How I can check if I have a faulty map sensor? Thoughts of what else it could be? It will have the info. January 18, 2016 Followup from the Pelican Staff: Thanks for the additional info and feedback. There is an access panel under the rear seat cushion that allows servicing. Then the 2 10mm screws under - to let the canister drop. These type of comments add so much to the Pelican tech community.
