Re: Buzzing noise from fuel tank
I hate to say this, but if it's a 5000 TQ your speaking about, I must
disagree. My car was making what was only described as "fuel pump" noises
when I bought it with 89,000 miles on it. I drove it like this for three
years and finally because I figured I was on "borrowed time, I put in a new
pump @ 146,960 miles. (This is all written down in the back of my Bentley).
Guess what ?? The new pump didn't sound any different, it still growns /
mowns away back there...its a noisey little sucker. At 207,000 and change it
sounds identical to when I bought it (with the old pump). Is this a
standard "problem" that others have found ?
