where can I find fuel pump ?


Asked by Dec 09, 2010 at 07:32 AM about the 1987 BMW 3 Series 325is Coupe RWD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

ok people where can I find the fuel pump on my car I thought it was in the tank BUT only wire goes to fuel sensor.  This is a restore project for my child, I have replaced the fuel filter,drained all liquid from tank and heated it up to dry it out, this seems to be the only thing that could cause the problem of not running correctly

Under car near rear wheel. You sure it's not your fuel pressure regulator, idle control valve, or air flow meter???

Actually it's under the rear seat (I was thinking of a Mercedes, they have under the car near the rear wheel) http://www.bimmerforums.co.uk/forum/f3/how-to-replace-e30-fuel-pump-t26375/ http://i405.photobucket.com/albums/pp137/steve23002/DSC00117.jpg
