theres one pump *inside* the tank, one outside, close to the tank,
under the car, close to the left hand door. (on a coupe/cabrio anyway)
you might think of getting a workshop manual for this car... makes
fault-finding and maintenance much more fun.
AFAIK there are two fuel filters on the E30. One under the car, and one
in the engine compartment. There is only one pump, AFAIK, and it resides
in the tank.
The main fuel filter is located beneath the left rear of the car, just
in front of the gas tank. The other filter is in the engine compartment,
on the left side of the car, just behind and below the front shock tower.
I only find the one filter behind the drivers door. I do not see another
one and I believe that I have traced the fuel lines all the way from the
tank to the fuel rail. It is a '91, so is this something that was changed
later on in the E30 life span? Thanks
And if you do find that it is the filter that is clogged, the filter
screen at the bottom of the pump in the fuel tank is most likely
damaged. Over time the plastic in the screen ages and becomes brittle.
This along with chafing creates splits and holes in it.
The pump might also give out in the near future if it was clogged with
muck from the bottom of the tank...
Yeah, Changed the filter and that made no difference, and when I pulled the
pump the screen has some holes in it, so I am presuming the muck got the
better of it. On my way to pick up a pump now, will let you know how it
turns out. Thanks to all.
