That is what I was figuring also richp.I Didn't know BMW made a fix for it thoughWere does the valve go?In the main line or the return line?Close to the tank or up toward the throttle body or evap canister???I have heard the evap canister it the cause of it also but never really did check into it.I know mine has done it before and it will go on for a few days then will be fine again for months.During those few days of doing it I normally just turn the key off and on a few times before I start it.

I'm not sure where it goes, I am only aware of it from reading about it. I'm thinking the closer to the tank the better, as for fuel lines, there is only one, there is no return line, the pump runs constantly while running and the return line is actually in the top of the fuel pump, this keeps a constant flow of fuel going thru the pump and keeps the pump cool. Yes, it uses gas to cool itself.
I've had mine 'stick' in my XJ, usually a couple of bottles, one right after the other, of Chevron fuel system cleaner, not fuel injector cleaner, frees it up.
I've got that problem now on one of my TJ's, takes about 15 seconds cold start in the morning, just have not picked up any cleaner.
