Fuel pump noise

Recommended Posts

Hi I have a 2002 4x4 v6 petrol hilux pushing 250,000 kms and it has a loud whistling sound I think coming from the fuel pump. Used to just happen when it was lowish on fuel but now always does it. Looking for any advice on what might be wrong or what I can do? 

Thanks

The pump could very likely be on its last legs, might be worth having one ready to go in or having the money aside to get it done.

What I did note in reading the following URL was the importance of replacing the fuel filter when replacing the fuel pump.

Maybe the current fuel filter is restricting fuel flow and the pump is working harder, therefore the noise.
