  • whining noise

    I have just started getting a whining noise at idle from the rear of the car when outside it sounds more like a buzzing sound any ideas .

  • #2
    The fuel pump makes a buzzing noise but a sweet note. If the noise is louder than normal and provided you have'nt heard it before whilst standing at the rear then I suggest the fuel pump. It could make this noise for sometime before packing in but if you are getting poor performance (i.e the car starts spluttering) then I would suggest a warranty claim on the fuel pump.

    I had an experience with my cavalier GSi as described above and replaced the pump with no more problems.

    Hope this helps but I may be also way off the mark

          the car sounds like my old pug 106 that had a whine in the first 3 gears.
          i thought it could be turbo related but it sure does sound like the gearbox is whining.

              hey guys, read the thread, the problem is at idle and any answers to daves prob would be appreciated.

              If you've got a gearbox whine, then how about starting a new thread eh? :wink:

                      if it is the fuel pump packing in i'd be careful when driving hard.

                      turbo cars rely on lots of fuel when on boost to stop detonation. if the fuel pump packs in when driving full throttle bye bye pistons

                          your fuel pump is at the back. you'll be able to tell if its the pump, it makes a sound like a small motor, kinda like a scalextric car

                          edit... the fuel pump is actually just infront of the back wheels ... edit



                          you shouldnt really be able to hear it over the exhaust though thinking about it.

                          im gonna listen to mine to see if i can here it

                            just had a listen to mine. no obvious buzzing. if i really put my ear to the tank i can hear the pump but only very faint.

                            apart from the miltek barbling away there are no other sound from the rear of my car
