Did the car store or was not used for a while or been in an accident I think the (float ) level for the tank has been moved or broken Like in a toilet if the float does not work water will run for ever In a mitsubishi shogun pajero the tank is easily approcheable on the rear of the seat I ' m not sure on the BMW Best ask and get your mechanic to change it Good luck

My bmw x5 2002 will not start. well it starts then stops about 15 r so seconds later. it has done this before but it started back up. at this time i was low on gas, i then filled up and it didnt happen...


We had a 2001 X5. When the Fuel gauge hit 1/4, it was time to fill up or you were stranded. I think it's the pump if it is below 1/4. We also received error engine codes when this happened. All you have to do after you refuel is to reset the code (drive with the code for awhile, it will reset after a few miles) and you're alright. The pump is somewhat expensive to change out if you take it to the dealer.

When gas tank is 1/4 full and I fill it up it doesn't show I have a full tank until I drive 15 miles.


Normal. There is a resister in the fuel level circuit that slows down fuel level readings. A gauge that responded instantly to a sloshing fuel level every time you went over a bump or around a turn would drive you crazy.

My 02 BMW is still registering hot. Took it to BMW


I would remove the water pump and inspect it.These cars have a problem with the impeller on the inside coming loose.

Other than that I would also do some teste to make sure you do not have a head gasket issue.
