Funny noises comming from 1980 Cadillac Eldorado
Hello. I drove my Eldorado for about a thirty minute trip, and when I returned home, the fuel pump was making syphoning noises. It didn't use to make noise. When I turn the key on, it is almost a grinding or gurgling noise. I just got my license, and I don't have a real job yet, so I did what I could afford to do and bought a new pump from the junk yard. Again, the same noise. Any ideas?
The next noise is a uuuuurrrrruuuuurrrruuuuuurrrrrr that echos off of solid objects that I pass on the road, such as a fence. Could that be a wheel bearing? This started, but then stopped for a while, before the fuel pump noise.
And for the last, when I apply the brakes to stop at a stop sign, right before I get to the line at about two to five miles per hour, I get a thump that I can hear and feel. Could that be the differential? This started before the fuel pump, but after the second noise.
