Did you try injector cleaner? What about changing injectors themselves?

They told me that fuel pump is not handling the tune .. And it is making this fault so what i m suppose to do!?

Is it the fuel pump? .. Is the fuel pump mostly done? I think was never replaced..
They told me also if i need to change it i need to replace fuel regulator also.


I have evolve tune some other suggest that i change the fuel pump with another bigger that handle high fuel capacity bar or something..

If i replaced the original oem fuel pump with another new oem does it clear this fault?

What we are 100% sure that the tune is making the fuel pump not to handle the fuel pressure.

Please help me what to do..

While the tune might be related, it certainly is *not* possible that the fuel pump can't keep up with the demand of the tune. The stock fuel pumps (there are no aftermarket pumps for the S85) will push a 6.0 stroker on stock injectors to over 700HP. It absolutely will handle a stock displacement engine with any possible tune you can throw at it.

Now, it is possible the tune could have a parameter that isn't adjusted correctly and cause the fault, but not very likely. If your'e on the original pump, it may be worth replacing and definitely the filter.

ah bro, but i kept doing my research and i found an owner of an m5 e60 that had the same problem.

he said do the following l should go to our dealer of BMW here in lebanon beirut " Bassoul- hneine" and buy a fuel pump and fuel regulator, the fault will disappear and the car should run fine and more powerful than befor, he suggested as they told me before to replace both cause one could cause damage to the other if not replaced both. don't know reason he said that but he said he already replaced one and leaved the other and the fault kept showing.


i m going to change then soon they cost here 650 USD both.
