    Fuel not being delivered

    Hi Guys hope everyone is well. Im sorry for the usual panicked post needing help. I ran out of fuel twice last week and then one day it just died on the M40. Sat, grumbled, and span it up and it eventually got going. Got as far as the next junction and almost got up the ramp when it died again. Fortunaltely I has a few tools in the car and immediately took the feed pipe to the fuel filter off to see if fuel was pumping and it was. Put the pipe back on and took the one off the delivery side of the pump and it too was pumping merrily. Called the AA (who to my amazement were with me in 15 mins) and we could see fuel and lots of air being delivered through a fortunately clear pipe after the filter. Got it spinning with a blast of brake cleaner and allowed it to run etc etc. A week has past and all has been fine but last night it died again. This morning I did the same tests and no fuel is being delivered. My questions are these.... Is there a pump in the tank and where exactly is the inline pump under the seat please? And of course any other ideas will be gratefully received. I have to resolve today as I have customers booked all week for work. Thanks as always Lee

    EGR tube for BMW 5 (E39)

    Ive not made it clear, the ego is already modified like the picture above, the pipe i posted a picture of has broken where the large cylinder is, where it meets the valve. It was full of wire wool and is clearly a breather of some kind but i don't really understand what it does. The thing was blowing exhaust gas straight into the car and making a hilarious swooshing sound. I need to know if its ok to weld it all the way round and thus its no longer a breather or either get a new one. I have to do one or the other.. Thanks CG

    EGR tube for BMW 5 (E39)

    Does anyone know where i can get one of these please? Also, it the fat bit that appears to be a breather of some kind, full of wire wool that has failed. Can i just weld it together??? Cheers CG

    Where is the air filter ?????

    Where is the air filter ????? I can't see it and I've watched 3 videos on youtube and they are all removing one from where my coolant header tank is??? E39 2003 2.5d Thanks CG
  14. Hi guys Just want to join in this thread. Ive cleared the service interval with my Snap On scanner when i got the car in December 2016 last year when i first serviced it. The green lights have got down to one and I've changed the oil etc again and the scanner only offers the manual instructions as written above to reset again. Im now down to one amber light and a written 'oil service' icon. Any clues please as its pretty annoying. Obviously I've written down my mileage etc to change the oil next time but id like it to work properly. Cheers CG

    525d 2003 front wheel bearing

    Can a moderator please delete my post as it is totally pointless. Made a very silly mistake when identifying the bearings. Sorry everyone My new bearing is fitted and the ABS works fine fortunately
