Feels like electric pump died. Listen for the buzz under the right rear seat for two-three seconds when you turn the key to on position.

Symptoms are typical of pump failure. If it is the pump... A few quick raps with a wrench or something sometimes gets it working temporarily in order to get home. Got an e30 and an e46 home that way. Not sure if the same truck could be utilized on the e53.

Good chance you can get a non starter pump to kick on with a smack but not so much if it cut out when running. The rap just bumps it past a flat spot on the commutator.

Yeah I was thinking about that after posting. My 2 experiences with that were trying to restart after shutting down. Not the pump giving out mid drive.

You can kick start a starter with the same trick. Any DC brushed motor really

Roger that!


$160.00 tow bill to get home; good deal considering where we live.



Added a total of 15 gallons and R/S still reads 6.0L.
L/S still reads 39.0L.


Won't turn over; we think with all the forum input and by the numbers in the test #6, the fuel pump is BBR/shot/kaput/quebrodo/dead.


Trying to stay positive, all the help in this community really helps.


Thx

I am about to do a 1000 miles trip in the winter with my X5 at 170k....I am thinking it may be a good idea to carry a spare one just in case...

Use only Pierburg!

Go to ebay and search E53 Pierburg Fuel Pump, there should be some for sales for $150 or so.
