BMW Mechainic, 2011 328i, No not myself. A mechanic that is

This answer was rated:

BMW Mechainic
JA: What is the model/year of your BMW?
Customer: 2011 328i
JA: Are you fixing your 328i yourself? What have you tried so far?
Customer: No not myself. A mechanic that is a friend of mine is trying to fix it.
JA: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?
Customer: That the car was not working properly and it was diagnosed that it was the fuel pump. The fuel pump was then changed and the car began to work fine, the only only problem now is that the fuel tank only fills up to the half tank. My mechanic already checked it and cannot find the problem.
JA: Has your car been stalling?
Customer: No the car has been working fine

Hello, my name is ***** ***** to Just Answer! I will be assisting you with your questions today. Give me one moment while I review this.

You either have a bad VENT valve in the EVAP system, or the pump replacement caused it by closing off a vent line accidentally.

They also need to double check the float setting of the tank unit.

Please understand that I don't know your skill level or tools
you have to assist us. Also understand that I can't see, smell,
hear, or touch the vehicle either, so your patience is
appreciated. JA is a great Q/A site, but it does not replace a
repair shop. So please don’t shoot the messenger if I have to
deliver bad news:)
pops up. I don’t get credit for helping you until
you rate me

Thanks, Ron

Can you please let me know in what area the valve is located?

You're welcome, thank you too and please remember to rate me 5 stars now and keep this link in case you need me again.

I don't get credit for helping you unless you rate me:)

It's on the EVAP canister in front of the fuel tank.
