Great DIY!! Many Thanks! My fuel pump gave out at 141k. Car hiccuped as if it was running out of fuel or fuel starved while driving home one night and just died out soon after (55 miles til empty).. It started up briefly and then died out again without any throttle response. After searching e46fanatics and putting in 2 gallons of gas just to be sure it wasn't out, I decided to replace both senders using this DIY. Had to use a jump and the car had rough idle at first, but after I restarted the car a second time I got a smooth idle. Thanks again.
