The BMW N54 fuel pump recall a few years ago brought to light the importance of the integrity of the fuel system and how it can contribute to the overall reliability of a vehicle. While BMW never officially stated what was causing the high-pressure fuel pumps to fail, some put the blame on low-quality fuel that might have been contaminated or had higher-than-normal levels of ethanol.
Despite the thought by some novice mechanics that it is overly complicated, the fuel delivery system is actually relatively simple. You pump the gas into the car, and then it is stored in the fuel tank before it makes its way to the engine.
While sometimes the vehicle won't start at all when you have problems with the fuel system, other times the motor still runs and you can drive the vehicle.
Airtex Fuel Delivery Systems, the world’s leading manufacturer of fuel pumps, recently received the National Catalog Managers Association (NCMA) President’s Award for Catalog Excellence in the web category.
Misdiagnosis is the leading cause of fuel pump problems and returns. Often, a voltage drop test is the only effective way to find excessive resistance in high amperage circuits. It’s a quick and easy test that will give you immediate results on whether you have a good connection or a bad one.
