BMW Fuel System Repairs
BMW’s have fairly complicated fuel systems. In some cases there is actually two fuel pumps in the vehicle, one in the fuel tank, and also one in the motor which is a high pressure fuel pump. When you bring your car in for service, or if you are having issues, we have the ability to use a scope to check the electrical integrity of these fuel pumps and make sure the injectors are functioning properly. BMW fuel system repair is an important part of keeping your car running well since fuel delivery is a big part of what makes your engine run. Not only that, but with newer vehicles BMW has started using direct injection although a nice technology there is some downfalls such as the necessity of cleaning the carbon buildup. We use fuel injector cleaners to help remove excess debris for the carbon. To remove the carbon in a direct injection motor, the only method is to use walnut blasting. During this process you physically remove the intake manifold and blast the carbon off with metal safe walnut shells.
There are a number of issues that may occur in your BMW. Make sure your BMW service center is properly equipped to handle such issues. We have a digital pressure sensor that works in conjunction with a top of the line oscilloscope to allow us to monitor pressures during BMW fuel system repairs. This not only allows us to look at the pressures at idle, but also during test drives. Occasionally certain issues only occur at certain speeds…in this case we need to be able to reproduce the issues while maintaining instruments on the vehicle so that we can pinpoint exactly what is going on.
So if you need something simple like a fuel filter replacement or perhaps more complicated like reprogramming fuel pump module or finding shorts. We can handle it all. Occasionally we are even repairing jobs that other shops have completed incorrectly. We have seen this occur in X5s before when the fuel lines were improperly connected allowing fuel vapors in the cabin, besides an unpleasant odor this also poses a very dangerous fire hazard if a spark ignites the vapor. This is why we recommend you give us a call if you are having any kind of issues with your BMW fuel system repair. We can always offer advice on how to proceed on how to fix you car. This is an important part of your BMW’s performance but also for your personal safety, make sure you have an excellent shop working on these kind of issues. We only use genuine parts and never install cheap aftermarket parts that can cause the issue to return.
Really Great service here. I was in a time crunch and the guy (young tall male) expedited the process for me. Seemed like a family run business, everyone very friendly and accomodating. I would certainly go back, and am referring my roommates and friends go there when they need to as well!
I have been using San Diego Bimmer MB since 1994. They are reasonable and honest and the mechanics are knowledgeable. Andy, Eva and Conrad are a pleasure to work with and go out of their way to accomodate my needs. i highly recommend their business. Molly McConnell
Took my Nissan Altima in because it had a small, but growing, oil leak. They fixed it rather quickly and for much cheaper than a quote I received from another shop. I would recommend them to anyone. Infact, once the manufacturer's warranty is over on my other car, I will probably start taking it here!
They are great!!! I take my Mercedes only to them now. Real parts, great honest people, don't be fooled by the building they know what they are doing and at half the cost or more than the dealer!!!!!!!!
a small dinky lot with excellent customer service and great work on very technical, module related work on recent Audis. A great experience after a number of major let downs from the only Audi dealership on a very shiny lot within 20 miles.
I have been going to Adams Avenue Imports for years and highly recommend them. First I was taking my Toyota Camry and more recently my Audi A4. They have always fixed whatever problem I've had for a fair price in a reasonable amount of time. They are a pleasure to deal with - honest, reliable and even kind.... Recently I had an estimate for work from the dealer, and Adams Ave. Imports did the same work for a much lower rate. They are good people who do good work.
