On my 2000 lade you can here a loud whining noise coming from the fuel pump does this mean that the pump is going out or is this just a common noise on this vechicle?:cookoo:

I have a 2000 and mine is as quiet as a mouse....I've had other cars where there was a constant whining noise. Did this just start? Maybe the pump is going? I'm just guessing.

I just took my 99 in yesterday and asked about it. There should be a light buzzing noise coming from the tank when the fuel pump is running. If it gets louder or makes odd noises they said that is the time to take it in. They also couldn't stress enough making sure that you don't run until empty, since they use the gas in the tank to cool the pump. They said always refill at 1/4 tank.

Sometime a clogged fuel filter will cause the pump to make a whining noise.
