    3 Fuel Pumps????????

    I have a 2005 Z4, 12,457 miles on it. I had the 1st fuel pump replaced at 450 miles, had the same problem while at BMW homecoming 2 times, had it back to the dealer 6 times. BMW reps at Homecoming said they would get in touch with my dealer, that never happened. Each time I took it to have it fixed, the noise went away by time I drove 80 miles to the dealer. SO, the last time it made the loud noise I called the dealer to have someone come to my home to actually hear it, which he did. I HAD to drive it to the dealer for them to replace it again (2nd time replaced). Well here it is, I put 400 miles on it and the NOISE is back. Nice sunny day & can't drive it. I'm so fed up with this car and BMW. I thought while it's under warranty they are supposed to flat bed it & bring a loaner??? NOPE, I had to drive it back & forth, 80 miles, 2 days off work. I see that the 03-04 Z's had recalls out. I can't enjoy this car, I always wonder if it's going to stall on the highway. Thanks for letting me vent. I would like to hear from others with this problem.

    He would probably do a better job!!!!!

    I sure can't drive it the way it is. I think this car will probably always have this problem. They will be putting my 4TH FUEL PUMP on. That's rediculas. How can you enjoy a car that has constant problems?

    Scott, I have e-mailed you with all the information. This will be my 4th fuel pump replaced as soon as BMW quits giving me the run around. I am still under warranty, and I'm being treated like crap.

    All of a sudden, BMW doesn't want to send anyone out to hear the noise. They started a new service. A service rep came to my home in November and heard the pump (after the car runs a while the noise quits until the next start up). Now, they don't have time. And we all know, if they don't hear the noise, they won't fix it.

    JackB1, they never said why the fuel pump keeps going bad.

    But, I do know if I don't get this resolved, I will take legal action.

    4th fuel pump

    Actually, this will be my 4th pump. This problem started when I had only 900 miles on it. It now has 12,000 miles on it.
