totally normal, these pumps run like 60psi so they are kinda noisey.
the pump on my truck is very noisey. the sending unit is already wacked up
and as soon as I get around to it I'm going to have the pump replaced under
I think the general consensis is that these pumps only last about 100K miles
I feel the need to "beat a dead horse". don't worry unless it stops
whining. It should especially want to whine when you turn the key. I
have 98 K1500 Z71 and just replaced last week at 108k. Your pump will
probably go when you have a full tank of gas:( 100k is the magic #.
I wrote earlier this week that if the pump does go, you can sometimes
get it started by having someone turn the key while you tap on the
tank with your fist. This is just to get you where you need to be to
fix it. I wouldn't put stock in this trick all the time.
