Question about 1997 BMW 328
Hi,, i have 1997 year BMW 328i Automatic, e36, American version. something is wrong with it,check engine light is on and car burns a lot of fuel, i checked it with computer and it says: solenoid valve for fuel evaporation system (running losses) what does this mean, please help me if you can
I had the same problem and it turned out that we had a crack in our fuel tank (or something related to the tank) which caused fumes to come out (nothing serious) but enough to have the light come on and NOT pass emmissions inspection in Atlanta GA. I love my 328i BUT.....it only has 110k miles and have spent over $5k in the past 12 months on this plus the entire cooling system which went out 1 component at a time. If your cooling system has not gone out....start saving!

I *think* that's the solenoid on the charcoal canister which is part of the vapor return system. Do you smell fuel? Probably should get a pro to diagnose that one. However you can find the canister under the spare tire if you want to have a look for something obvious.
