PLEASE HELP!!! I am trying to troubleshoot what I believe to be a fuel delivery problem and I am following all the advice on line and in the manual about checking the fuel pump relay (jumpering 30 and 87), BUT I CAN'T FIND THE RELAY.

It's a 91 318i and I'm already suspicious because the 7.5A fuse (#11) was replaced with a 15A fuse. Anyway, I cannot find any relays around the main fuse box (except the ones in the fuse box and I know what these are--not the fuel pump relay).

Any help is greatly appreciated.

Mike

Well, I found it. It was under the plastic shroud across the top of the firewall.

Thanks anyway.

Mike

Now to figure out which lines are which on the fuel pump. (There are four of them coming out of the top of the fuel tank where the sending unit sits!)
