I have a 1988 plymouth grand voyager se and the fuel pump has a loud humming noise when running,when I first turn key to ign. it runs then shuts off but when running it has a constant hum?is there a relay causing this or a bad pump?anyone ever change one on this vehicle?thanks
36 Hits and not one suggestion?wow
bad pump - thats the sign its ready to go.....heard enough of them to know that much....done it a few times on the van my dad used to use for courier driving....couple in my old car...
if it hasnt been done then yeah it could be the pump is ready to go....or if someone has been in there, and forgot to replace the rubber that isolates the sound, if you get the pump changed which i would, make sure they use new rubber insulators, they usually come with the pump and inquire to them to see if any baffles in the tank have broken off and are floating around in the tank, durango's have that problem, same company probably same tank..lol i dunno just pissin in the dark here
silly banffy, theres a slight age difference..im sure the tanks are
and its actually not TOO bad to change the fuel pump - just pick up a haynes manual at your local auto store, it will tell you how to do it :)
yeah but i just read 2 sentances of an article and thought i would be like everyone else and post what i just barely read. as i wrote it i doubted the tank being the same but whatever BROKEN BAFFLES it is,
Oh shit, I forgot to actually READ the post. :orglaugh:
O.K. thanks for the info,putting alot into this old van so I guess I'll just wait it out til she blows?
well, not knowing where you live(cuz if its cold, you wont really want to
do this), my suggestion would be try to find a decent fuel
pump(rebuilt/reconditioned or new), and try to damn near run out of gas
going into a weekend, and spend a saturday afternoon replacing the
pump....alot easier if the tank is almost empty....
otherwise youre going to find that it wont start one day...
Thanks for all the info,as of today she's still running more noisy on a full tank than half or less but still running a friend at work has a caravan that does the same thing?must be a mopar thing?
ehh it's not really a mopar thing....shit gets old, and wears out.
