Please help, for I am in dire need of some advice. Most recently, I was driving my 1989 525I BMW on th highway. I was doing 60 miles per hour, and all of a sudden the car cut off. I pulled over, and restarted the car, drove for about 10 minutes and it cut off again. i tried to restart but it would not restart. Finannly, after I waited 2 hours, it restarted. About 1 and a half years ago, I jumped my fuel pump fuse and hooked it on to the heater blower fuse, similar to the link below.
Since then never had any problems. But I think it might be the fuel pump this time. When I turn my car on, you hear the fuel pump operating in the background (makes some noise). Is this normal? Currently, my car starts, and runs, but after 15 minutes of driving it cuts off. I recently cleaned the fuse box and the jumped fuel pump and heater blower fuse. So, what could it be? Feul pump or fuse circuit board. If it is the fuse circuit board, is the circuit board expensive, and what am I looking at on labor charges? Someone please help, for all the bad mechanics think I need a tuneup.
