My Ride: bmw 330ci
Hey guys might be a stupid question, but I am aware that my fuel pump has a "soft failure" where the car will not turn on if I have under a 1/4 tank. The car is a 2001 330ci. I have not bothered to fix it as I just never let it get close to 1/4 tank. Call me stupid or whatever but I just dont have the money at the moment to fix it. I have just recently noticed a huge loss in power in my car like it is struggleing at lower rpm and no longer get that "kick" in power when i step on the gas. Feels like it has no "vtec" if it were a honda civic ( excuse my poor correlation)
My question is : does this have anything to do with the "soft fuel pump failure" or is is something entirely different. Please respond any advice you have THANK YOU
