3826Re: [bmw e28] petrol smell and gearbox noise
- Aug 27, 2005i have run across the same problem, it was the small
connector hose from the rail fuel pump and the large
filter on a u.s. model, i think when the car is shut
down, the pressure that builds up backs up and causes
the fuel to seep out there. take a look and see if
there is a dirty shellack looking film around the
pump... good luck.
