Ford has had loud fuel pumps for many years. I myself wouldn't worry
about it until it goes because a lot of replacement pumps are probably
worse than what you have in there now. Unless, of course, that it is
The replacement part involves taking off the gas tank, replacing the
fuel pump and then reinstalling the tank back on your car.
My 97 Escort also has a really loud whine that's audible when you stand
the running car, but it's perfectly quiet when you're inside. I would let it
go until it shows signs of failing (low fuel pressure).
