EF Fairmont Noisy Fuel Pump and Tapping sound
I'm hoping someone here may be able to render me a little assistance with my EF Fairmont. To give a bit of background information it's duel fuel, however prior to my ownership of the vehicle it hadn't been run on ULP for many, many years. As one can imagine the fuel had turned to tar in the tank and the pump and sender needed replacing.
I had all the work done by the local mechanic here along with a standard service. Since the service the engine developed a tapping sound from under the rocker cover. Another trip to the mechanic and 12 new valve lash adjusters later (amongst also replacing the fuel sender again) the car was running fine for the first 10 minutes or so. Once the car heated up however I noticed the tapping sound had returned.
After running the car for a little longer I then noticed an electrical whirring noise, upon arrival home I pin pointed the noise to be coming from the fuel tank. Doing a little more troubleshooting of the issue I found that if I turned the car off and started it again the noise from the fuel pump would cease, however after about a minute of running the noise returns and grows steadily louder.
I phoned my mechanic (who I do trust), however he can't look at it until Wednesday. Normally this wouldn't be an issue for me, but I am moving interstated next weekend and need to do alot of running around. I don't have another car to use so I was hoping that someone may be able to help me diagnose the issue and perhaps put a bandaid on the problem until my mechanic can look at it.
Thanks in advance.
