i have a 1995 BMW 525i with 218,000 miles that i have had for years with no issues but normal maintenance and wear and tear. All of a sudden it started to shake as i hit the gas and losses power I was going to get a tune up but remembered i just replace the plugs. What I noticed is a rainbow color leaking up towards the front middle of the car. Is this my fuel filter? It still runs and idles good or is it a hole in the fuel line where oxygen is getting to it?
