Gas Cap Replacement

Postby Hagar46 » Sat Apr 16, 2016 1:04 pm

Had to replace my gas cap today. Check gas cap light came on the speedo and motor started running rough. Also got a beep beep beep ... from the gas tank. Advance Auto actually had a genuine BMW part in stock! All seems to be running fine again. Ready for another 220k miles! :D :D :D

Also threw error code P0455 - evaporative system major leak. I think the beeps were coming from the electric fuel pump that is in the gas tank. :(
