I've got a fuel pump load enough to force me to ask for advice.
I've searched similar posts on the net but can't find a definitive answer.
This is the second Bora 4motion I've owned and can't remember this being an issue in my previous one so here it goes..
Open driver door: Fuel pump primes for a few seconds. Interior dome light, dash light, door puddle light all come on.
Ignition on: Normal.
Engine on: Loud buzzing within cabin, front and rear.
Apply brake pedal: Buzzing stops from front, continues in rear.
Accelerate: Buzzing stops from front, continues in rear.
I believe the continuous buzzing from the rear to be the in tank fuel pump underneath the rear bench. I have had the filter checked and there are no problems.
I have read that the buzzing is normal and with either the engine running or stereo playing; you should not be able to hear it.
I have also read that the buzzing is a sign that the fuel pump is on its way out.
I have also read that the buzzing is normal and nothing to worry about.
I have not read anywhere of buzzing omitting from the front of the cabin. Now I do not know whether I have bat-like hearing that I am the only one ever to hear it; whether this is subjective or not; or I am going crazy and hearing things!
My questions are:
- Is my fuel pump dying?
- Do I need to check fuel pressure regulator?
- Is my fuel pump relay knackered?
- Do I have a split fuel pipe?
- Is there something else I need to investigate?
- Am I going crazy?
Thanks in advance chaps
