Re: [DML] Fuel Pump Noise

I'm betting it's the pump.  Also be careful dousing a hot pump with cold
gasoline.  I killed a pump this way once in Deming, NM and have talked to
customers in Las Vegas and Houston who have done the same.
It probably gets worse as the level recedes because there is less fuel in
contact to cool it.  I limped a whiney pump home from Austin one summer
evening.  I was afraid to put gas in the tank for fear of having to wait in
LaGrange, (say),  for the night, so I kept going.  It balked and kicked, but
ran better as the sun got lower.  New pumps fixed all of those.

Ever since Bosch moved their pump factory to Czechoslovakia, I've gotten
more complaints about the OEM pump and had to return more pumps to Bosch.
Our aftermarket pump is much more reliable and cheaper.

Guess what's next.
