EF Noisy Fuel Pump
The fuel pump on my EF (4.0) is very noisy at times, it seems to get louder when the pump works for longer e.g on long trips. It has done this for a while and it is slowly getting louder over a shorter running time. The car has shown no loss performance as the sound gets louder.
Someone has told me that it is common for these pumps (because they are submersible) to get loud when the fuel tank gets low on fuel, but time after time I have proved this theory wrong as it does it on a full tank aswell.
What I was wondering is, because it is getting louder sooner do you think it might stop soon? As I am going to be doing a long trip through isolated areas soon and don't want to get stuck in the middle of no where waiting for some one to come along. But I don't want to fork out the $300 plus for a new pump if it isn't warranted.
Suggestions anyone ?
