Default fuel pump noise

Does the fuel pump make strange noises when it starts to die
and what do they sound like?
my car makes a strange noise like an idler pulley for ac going bad it does not do it when engine is cold only after engine is at full temperature. the noise seems to be coming from rear of cab but it might originate in the engine compartment.

Default Re: fuel pump noise (blkjak)

when your fuel pump goes out they just go out I.E. doesn't do anything at all
what i would do if you don't have power steering pull the belt off take it for a ride if it is still making noise

what you could be hearing is the alternator bearing starting to go out
it it a grind or a whine

Mine makes the same noise. I hear it through the filler neck which is like right behind you in a crx. Almost sounds like metal on metal rubbing. Took me a while to figure out what the hell it was.

update - noise stops when a/c compressor is engaged - possible compressor or idler pulley bearing? blkjak Click the image to open in full size.
