Leaking fuel pump = bad day.

After ten days with no time to drive my tii, I tried to enjoy my day off driving it, but the fuel pump started leaking heavily, so the car has been parked at my uncle's workshop the whole day. I was hoping it was a broken hose, but the pump said; enough!

Due to the situation I've decided to spend the day cleaning it, and protecting all the plastics and rubber parts, including the dashboard that now looks great, with CarPro PERL. New spark plugs have been installed also (NGK BP6ES), new H4 Philips Xtreme Vision bulbs, and still waiting for the new fuel pump. I rather been driving it, but.........

Almost forgot it, new tires also (165/80/13), old ones were from 2006.

I guess the car is going to run much better than this morning, so in some way I'm happy.

Cheers,

Vte :)

PS: hope to have a sunny sunday to enjoy it.

Are you sure the pump itself is leaking and not the (2) hoses nor the round canister? My canister rusted enough to start leaking fuel on the ground. I replaced the entire unit with a new one from BMW.

It was the pump, new one running great and smooth, I can't even hear it. Old one was noisy.

Did you install a stock tii fuel pump? If so, where did you find one? Some folks have used a 5-series pump and also an E30 in-tank pump.

It's a Pierburg.

I did not like the look when I saw it, but it runs perfectly, and no other choices for the same day.

Don't know the reference, if you need it, I can ask my cousin.
