On my 1992 crown vic.4.6 i have a loud electronic hum seems to be coming from the fuel tank.is it the fuel bump making this noise? also it is really loud only when i have the tank full when the fuel level goes down the noise subsides with it.

2002 kia rio cinco. With full tank it runs good. At 3/4 full it starts idling fast,around 3000rpm and cutting out. when fuel is low you can hear fuel pump run for about 10 secods after tuning on the key. Pretty loud. when tank is full,not as loud. Does this sound like bad fuel pressure regulator or weak fuel pump? would a bad pump relay cause the car to run good with a full tank and stop running at 3/4 tank? Details

I Have a 1988 Chevy 454 motor in an RV. I have added a new inline electric fuel pump to replace the mechanical one. The fuel pump worked last year but now all I hear is a loud ticking noise from the pump and it never stops. I am not getting any fuel to the carburetor. No fuel leaks. What should a electric fuel pump sound like? Last year it would tick loud until it pressurized and I wouldn't hear it over the engine noise. Thank You!


Most electric pumps have a low hum to them. There are some that pulse, but I have never seen one just click. You may have a bad pump. Good Luck ... 1988 Chevrolet Cargo

My 98 chevy malibu makes a howling noise. it does this driving down the road and also setting still while the engine is still running. it sounds like the noise is coming from the gas tank. could it possibly be the fuel tank or a fuel filter stopped up.


If its coming from the gas tank area the only thing i can think of would be the fuel pump..they make a little humming sound, but if its making a howling sound it might be going bad. does this help? ... 2000 Chevrolet Malibu

Fuel rail pressure drops from normal at 3500 rpm to zero at 4500 rpm. already replaced fuel filter, checked rail pressure regulator, replaced in-take pump, external pump replaced by previous owner and tested by me. the external pump makes a whining noise in the vehicle, but is silent during bench test. what is the box above the fuel tank flange passenger side, just forward of the right rear tire, the external pump takes its suction from this box. is the box related to the noise and/or pressure

I have a Mercedes A Class 1.6 LWB and when releasing the fuel tank cap the air sucks in . If left for several trips the cap is nearly impossible to remove. When removed one hears the air rush in and a rattling noise from the front of the car. Have replaced the cap but did not fix the problem. Where does the air get into the tank as the fuel is used up?
