I have a 1999 Chevy K1500 that I have recently bought. I love the truck but
the electric fuel pump makes a fairly loud whining sound when running. If
you turn the key to the on position it will whine until the pressure is
built up, then it stops making noise. As soon as it's started again the
whining is back.
I'm being told that this is normal for some Chevy truck models. Does this
sound right? Anybody else have this issue?
Actually, you do still have to think about the pump quiting on you. In the
world of electric fuel pumps, some make noise and some don't, but they all
fail. Always keep more than a quarter tank of gas so the pump will run
cooler, but sometimes that doesn't help either. As soon as you get about
100k miles, you can pretty much plan on a fuel pump failure. If you're
lucky, it'll quit in your driveway with very little gas in it. I figure
mine is going to fail 10 minutes after I fill up and on the hiway in rush
I have a 97` and the noise was loud.
I could hear it when I was driving with the window open.Took it to a
friend that`s a Chev mechanic and he said,WOW,you got a quiet one. Does
that answer your question?
