That would be shocking.

I brought my 2007 335xi in for service in February. At the time the dealership said my car is only due for the software update recall and is not affected by the injector or hpfp recall. So all they did was the software update.

Now in April I just had to bring in my car for service again (due to something unrelated: transfer case failure). This time I brought it to a different dealership. They now told me that the car also needs the injector check and hpfp replacement. So they checked all injectors but didn't find any needing replacement. They did put in a new hpfp (part # 170).

This raises the question: has BMW updated its database for what recall tasks need to be performed between February and April? Or did one of the two dealerships look up the recall info for my car incorrectly???

is there anyway to check if this service was performed already? I just had my car a few months now and now and while driving I get random engine malfunctions and it says reduced power. I work 80 hours a week so it's hard for me to get it into a dealer, but I'll end up having too. If I just pull over and turn off the car and turn it back on it's fine. I've heard that this is probably this problem. I'll have to take it in. I just didn't know if you can get a service history online or over the phone without going into the shop

edit: answered my own question. called the dealer and gave them the VIN. Scheduled service for 3 recalls. Awesome

Your symptoms are not necessarily recall related. Could also be VANOS, vacuum leak, or collapsed vacuum hoses to the waste gates. All of these cause exactly what you are seeing. Be sure to mention it and get them to pull codes, don't just assume HPFP.

My car had those symptoms and the fix was the replacement of solenoid valves.

Yes, they rolled out the fuel pump and injector replacement over a period of time to manage supply of parts. I doubt it would be anything more complicated than production date or vin sort ascending.

Does it say anything like reman after the part number? That is a new part number I think.

so ive got an 07 with about 62k now. I bought it CPO when it was 46k. I havent had any HPFP work done but i did get the turbos/wastegate replaced at 47k. Looking back on my service history paperwork, i dont think the HPFP was ever replaced either. Should I go in and get any of this recall work done?

Yes, you will get a piece of paper that you will need in order to register your car with CA DMV.

Yes, 10 yrs/120K miles on the HPFP. Not sure if they will ding you on updating the software, probably not given there is a recall on. But be sure to ask when you drop it off!

Thanks for the prompt answer, the correct information, and for not jumping all over me for asking a question that I'm sure has been answered...

no wonder my has that wacking sound, too...i didn't get annoyed since the car has been performing normal since...

the problem is that i got it CPO last May and haven't received the recall notice, last time engine light on with all the symptoms and had to replace all 6 fuel injectors (flash of course failed the previous day)

My E90 335i MT, March 2007 build, had the HPFP replaced with the #170 part and the the updated software.

Also had the last dealer oil change, brake fluid, and microfilter replacement completed.

Unfortunately I do notice turbo lag now. Exhaust note is lower at idle. The lag is not horrible, but it is not something I am imagining either.

I am not sure if I should live with the change, or should I take it back to the dealer and request the 'wastegate control' option. Will they even know what this is anymore?

Annoying that this is still an issue after all these years!

Military stationed in Germany had the HPFP issue and replaced free of charge! German warranty is usually only covered for 2 years. By German standards i was not covered but because the car is US spec they replaced the pump. Still not sure exactly which pump model was used?

Recall Work

I brought my vehicle into the dealership for a CBS based brake fluid flush and was informed that they would also perform this recall. I had not yet received a letter from BMW, so I was suprised.

Not only did they perform this service, but during a test drive they noticed that my car had no boost. They replaced a vacum accumulator upon further analysis. They also replaced a microfilter and also both cup holders due to peeling.

Here are the parts that they used:

PKHPP - High pressure pump
13-53-7-582-770 - ASA-BOLT
13-51-7-616-446 - EXCHANGE HIGH PRESS
13-53-7-614-317 - SENSOR FOR LOW PRESS
11-65-2-247-620 - VACUM TANK
64-31-9-142-115 - MICRO FILTER

I have a 335i sedan with a build date of September 2007.

Dealership is Crevier BMW in Santa Ana and Sonny is my SA. My experience with Crevier has been exceptional and they have always exceeded my expectations.

Well I might be having some problems in my '09 now.

I have already had the HPFP replaced twice. The last time was over the winter and I have to check the paperwork, but I believe the HPFP was a 933.

This morning driving to work I got the half engine light, reduced power warning. I thought I have had some longer than normal cranks lately but they seem intermittent.

I shut the car off and turned it back on and the light was gone. I just hope I make it home okay.

I am out of warranty except for the extended warranty of the pump so I hope it is either nothing or the pump. I will bring it to the dealer tomorrow.

Now THIS is the way all BMW dealers should treat their customers. I had a similar positive experience with my dealer (Taylor BMW, Augusta, GA) when I brought my car in for a routine oil service - they gave me a loaner car and told me to return the following day because there was a bunch of stuff they wanted to put to right (even replacing the air bag unit because I complained about cosmetic blemishes in the roundel emblem in the center of the steering wheel).

From your build date, it sounds like you might be getting towards the end of your warranty this year. Shortly before that happens, be sure to go over your car with a fine tooth comb and note anything and everything that does not function like new. Sounds like your dealership is one that will remedy everything you find with zero hassle.
