Question about 1997 BMW 318
I bought a 1997 BMW 318i but even when i fill the tank the needle stays at empty and the petrol light is on. Can this be fixed and is it pricey ? Any help appreciated
The only problem is the floater of your gas tank.It is easy to be fixed all you need to do is to take the back seat off and you will going to see the upper portion of your gas tank there's a circular or square portion plate that have a 4 bolt's on it and a electrical wire just loose the bolt's and pull the floater up, then you will see there it's electrical mechanism just clean it by using a sand paper to clean the bronze part then turn on the key switch, move the floater up and down check the gas gauge. it is not pricey though if you want it to be fixed by a mechanic.
