If car was idleing then it quit, i have seen this before. check to see if fuel pump is bad. the car might have been running with gas allready in fuel line. if pump is ok, check fuel filter.

    fuel filter may need changed, or the fuel pump is the problem. anyway it sounds like a fuel problem.

  • carl May 22, 2010

    make sure if fuel pump is running when the key is on. if you can not hear pump from fuel tank. get under car at tank and see if you can hear or feel it. if it is running it may be the fuel filter thats clogged with dirt. have someone turn key to on while listening to tank.

    it sounds as if it is not getting fuel, it is your fuel pump or a blocked fuel filter. listen for pump to come on from filler neck, or under car at tank. have someone turn key to on only, while you listen for pump to come on.

  • carl Jul 29, 2010

    yes if pump is ok! the fuel is being blocked. check filter.

  • carl Aug 02, 2010

    if the fuel pump is working, I would check the fuel filter. it may not be getting enough fuel due to clogging of fuel filter.

A mechanic would use starting fluid to suppliment the fuel supply. Then check for fuel pressure with a gauge.
It could be the pump relay among other things.

Ur BMW X5 series is having a transmission problems and it going to be worst if u don't take this car to a AMGO or the BMW dealership to take a look at it transnission gear box.Must have the car transmission fix.If u adnore this problems long enough the car transmission gears in the box will evenly buckle and grain to a ruin all of the gears parts teeths and than the car have to be in reverse and go to drive again every times tries to drive this car.Evenually all the gears teeths in the transmission box are all gone this car will go into iddle and will not go into drive gear at all.

Does the fuel gage read any higher now that you put fuel in it? If so, It was probably out of gas like you suspected. However, running a vehicle out of gas is extremely ******* fuel pumps. If your fuel pump was worn, with a lot of miles, it is probably toast now.

My 1996 Olds LSS doesn't idle properly,idling surges sometimes,the temp. gauge doesn't work and sometimes the heater doesn't work.It may stall while driving.If I get in and the power seats...


Your first problem is to find out why the intermittent no-power problem. Honestly, that sounds like a loose conmnection somewhere. check all your grounds for clean and tight conditions Also, battery connections and alternator connections. Double check your power distribution center for any loose wires or poor connections. Once you solve that problem, then you can diagnose the other problems with poor idle and temp. gauge.
