Hi i replaced the fuel filter on my 04 Cooper and now car hesitates while starting and it doesnt start on first crank.
Fuel gauge reads wrong,fuel tank was empty but fuel gauge showed like quarter tank.

I think i did everything correct i double checked but i could disconnected something out of float assembly or wires.
Or could this be a bad fuel pump but car wasnt doing this things before.

PS I am using the Vaico filter

What was wrong with the car before you replaced the parts?

Did you have a diagnostic scan of the car?

Does the fuel guage still reads wrong capacity or does it read correct with some fuel in?

I would recheck the install you've done as you might have not connected some of the electrical connector and/or hoses properly.
