BluesTraveler Posted September 28, 2007 Share Posted September 28, 2007 Had the fuel pump on my 04'GSA quit on me the other day at freeway speed. Pulled the tank and took it out this afternoon and preformed a bench test. At first it wouldn't work then on a third try it ran for a couple of seconds. Took it off the mounting plate, tapped it with a very small rubber tipped mallot, hooked up the power and it ran like nothing was ever wrong. Put it all back together and made a few trips around the neigborhood. Seems all fixed but Im sure it will do it again. This is the same pump that took me about 2200 miles a little over a month ago with a clogged/restricted fuel filter. Remember the thread? I feel this could be the reason for early failure or is 55,000 about it for the stock pump. What I was wondering is there maybe another aftermarket fuel pump that doesnt run $200-$250 that wil work. Is the BMW part the only opption? Thanks in advance, Link to comment
