With more than 650 full-color glossy photos accompanying extensive step-by-step procedures, this book is required reading in any 3 Series owner's collection.
The book was released in August 2006, and is available for ordering now. I was planning on writing a technical article on the fuel pump replacement, but was unfortunately "forced" into it when the pump in my E36 3-Series died on us in Las Vegas last year.
Disconnecting the electrical harness and checking the voltage supplied to the pump revealed a healthy 12 volts - the problem was definitely with the pump.
Luckily for us, one of Pelican Parts' suppliers had a warehouse a mere two miles away, and we were able to obtain a new pump the next morning.
This article is one in a series that have been released in conjunction with Wayne's new book, 101 Performance Projects for Your BMW 3 Series.
The book contains 272 pages of full color projects detailing everything from performance mods to timing the camshafts.
We then set out to perform the arduous procedure of a fuel pump replacement in the parking lot of our hotel!
Surprise - the pump was not making any noise or vibration when we tried starting the car.The bottom line is to get as much gasoline out of the tank as possible.Unfortunately in the parking lot of the hotel, we were not able to get as much gasoline out as we hoped - under ideal circumstances, the tank would almost be completely empty.Now, disconnect the fuel lines that feed into the top of the pump.There will be some gas spillage here - have a roll of absorbent paper towels on hand.
