I know allot have posted thread about fuel, and I know how to search them down, But I'm now posting this thread to get Ideas from the experienced people with this exact issue
The issue I had is as below:
I was Driving my 330CI 2001, waiting to get to a Petrol station with 98 Fuel, sadly it was too late and the car turned off, and the second sad part I had to try turn it on and drive it alittle more just to get it out of the Motorway/Fastway to avoid causing traffic..
the car did turn on after a couple of tried and drove as sluggish as possible (yes i know its normal), got to the side of the road got some fuel in the car, got to a petrol station filled it with 98 (Full tank) car only said 550KM on the average range..
Usually says 650 to 680 KS..
thats the first issue i noticed, Second issue is that the car is still sluggish and slow, and is still hesitating, so when driving from stop it would take long to get it up to speed, it sounds to me like there is lots of dirt that has been lifted up from the tank to the lines or the filter or the pump...
the car will not drive quickly from stop to 50ks even if you throttled all the way to the end..
If you do go full throttle it will be sluggish from 0-20 ks then go smooth
Once you are driving on 50 ks
It will drive nicely as long as you are not trying to go full throttle
Once you do try to go full throttle from 30-40 ks or 50 it it will hesitate and also change gears in a funny way ,
I'm assuming the throttle body is trying to open up but fuel isn't enough ..(maybe)
Add to that that it doesn't start straight when you turn the key, it takes some time (just about an extra 2 seconds of ignition)
Now what I really want to get out of this, what will be the main cause, Lines, fuel filter , fuel rail , injectors , or pump, or relay??? what is it that will first get affected by the cause..
Thank you and i appreciate all your input..
