The fuel pump delivers high-pressure fuel to the fuel injection system in the engine compartment via the fuel filter mounted underneath the vehicle, approximately below the driver's seat left side M52 and M54 engine. June 8, 2015 Followup from the Pelican Staff: Check if the filter is installed correctly. Like another poster mentioned above, you need to get a fuel pressure gauge and do a pressure test and residual test.
Much like a simple garden hose, the fuel injectors spray the pressurized fuel in a fine mist into the cylinders, ensuring a complete and efficient ignition process. The Repair Difficulty Level displays graphically how challenging the repair is, from easy to advanced. To verify clearance, the dimensional drawings on the product pages can be used as a reference guide. You will never question yourself when you have a photo of the data! I realize the fuel economy has to be 1st sign, but I have a hesitation conditions on my '92 535I 5 speed, more noticeable when cold, but also noticeable not as much when warmed up, and I am suspecting the fuel pressure regulator. Would that breather pipe that's not connected push such a strong smell through the cabin?? What I wanted to know is how the vacuum regulator on the end of the fuel filter works, which I believe would control the back flow to the siphon pump. Connect the fuel supply line and regulator vacuum line.
Install the new fuel filter in your fuel filter bracket and tighten the 10mm fastener. Think of it changing where and when the excess fuel from the regulator is sent.

Take a photo of the results instead of writing them down or trying to commit them to memory. Once you figure out what is missing, it will be easier to diagnose. No hesitation…but had a smelly converter, usually the sign of a rich mixture. The pump is combined with the right side fuel level sender. Now is a good time to check for leaks.

Like another poster mentioned above, you need to get a fuel pressure gauge and do a pressure test and residual test. The shape of the plugs, with signs of carbon reinforces this when I replaced them. All Replacement brand items are backed by a 1-year, unlimited-mileage warranty. Usually this regulator controls the pressure to the fuel rail ie: at idle with high vacuum reduces fuel rail pressure, then at load there is low vacuum so full pressure is needed so the injector don't cavitate. There are usually no symptoms when this vacuum line fails and goes unnoticed until you replace your fuel filter.
Thinking the 02 sensor was possibly 'lazy', I replaced it, but had no improvement. I can only suggest that you scrupulously check all vacuum lines for possible leaks. Are there any fault codes? Made from tough, rigid material. Installed a vacuum gauge and there is no signal. Disconnect the fuel line 1, be ready with a rag to catch the excess fuel. When I had my car in for an air bag recall the dealer couldn't offer any explanation.
Do you have questions or want to add to the article? Are there any fault codes? Save yourself the aggravation now and later by removing the heater cover to begin with. This is ideal when plumbing a custom high flow fuel system using an aftermarket regulator and custom fuel lines. Check spark, fuel injector pulse and fuel pressure, volume, quality and engine compression. I looked many other places for the info I needed for this project and couldn't find it until I came here. This way you can monitor the condition of the fuel heading into the filter. Sadly, you need… On all except coupe models insert a screw driver through the hole in the inner fender top.

Fuel is pumped from the gas tank through a network of lines and hoses to the engine fuel rail, where it is fed into the cylinders via the fuel injectors.
I'd have thought that it should be not operating at high manifold vacuum ie. Let idle for about 15 seconds, then turn vehicle off and check the reading on pressure gauge. When re installing the new fuel pressure regulator, be sure the circlip is properly seated, you can check by looking for the tab extruding from the retaining housing cut away. January 31, 2015 Followup from the Pelican Staff: All filters should be there, possibly on the next page. Fuel Pressure Gauge Adapters can be found. There is an access panel with three screws by the driver's side front wheel. I was wondering do you have to run until stalling'? Does anyone know how to tell if the fuel regulator is bad? Question I have is on the rear of the inlet manifold there is 3 connections one of which is the electro solenoid one capped and the other I'm not sure the elbow fit seems right, Or can I be getting the two lines from the tank mixed up and the other connects to purge valve going under the air filter and to the body?? The simplest way to do this is to use a small flat blade screwdriver to press down on the valve stem inside the schrader valve the same way you would release air from the schrader valve on a bicycle tire.
