Re: [DML] Louder Fuel Pump Buzzing after Replacing Fuel Hoses at the Fuel Pump -- Sound Deadening Help



Wayne, I know it sounds silly, but make sure those two lines are not laying 
down on the fuel tank. They should be in an upright position arching to the 
passenger side hard lines and facing away to the left in/out of the boot 
cover.
 Also, if you moved the pump (or removed it) it's highly possible you 
kinked/disconnected the pickup line in the tank.
