SOURCE: gas tank

I would suggest making sure you have a vented gas cap.

SOURCE: buzzing noise coming from fuel tank

it is the electric fuel pump you hear it should not be heard but sometimes before they fail they make noise drive it until it wont start up when that happens its time to replace it must drop fuel tank to do it and it costs about 150 dollars for part. could go for some time before failing.

SOURCE: fuel pump making gurgling grinding noise on 1995 c1500

more then likely yes it is. I would just run your truck the way it is until it goes all the way bad. It may last a day it may last a year

SOURCE: gas tank making loud whinning noise when i take

assuming from the noise i am assuming your opening the gas cap while the engine is running. that noise your are hearing is prob the fuel pump. your really not supposed to open the gas cap while the engine is running. pressure is needed inside the gas tank for everything to work properly. after a while of doing so you may get a emissions code for either a small or a large leak. i recommend when pumping gas to shut the engine off to eliminate any future problems that could happen.

2015 Nissan Pickup Truck, why dose the gas tank gurgle when gas is below half a tank? Done it before, but I don't remember how much gas was in the tank.

These newer cars all run fuel pressure systems that have a return line from the pressure regulator to the tank. Many models run this line to the bottom of the tank to prevent this noise. Also possible you have a bad gas cap or cap seal.

What causes gas tank to make gurgling sound and **** out gas when fueling?

Sounds like the air vent is plugged and the air in the tank pushing the gas back out instead of being able to breath.

Why does my montero cooing system makes gurgling noise

In many cases of gurgling cooling system, you have a possible head gasket problem starting and the combustion from the engine is pressurizing the cooling system. Check your cooling system thoroughly for evidence of a possible blown head gasket.
Are you loosing cooling system water?
Is your radiator overflow tank being pressurized excessively by the engine. Headgasket problems can sometimes put some much pressure in that overflow tank that it begins to bulge outward.
Check the oil and look for any white/greyish milk shake consistency fluid on the oil fill cap or on the radiator cap. Keep a close eye on your oil and water levels if your gurgling sound continues. This is not normal and again, usually is a sign that there is a possible leak between the headgasket and a water jacket on the head.
Did you overheat the vehicle anytime soon? This will many times breech a head gasket between water jackets and begin spraying water in small amounts right into the engine cylinders, while it pressurizes the cooling system and makes gurgling noises.

Truck wont start...remove gas cap and it starts...why?

Does it make a whooshing noise when it is being removed? The only thing that springs to mind is that your gas tank is plugged creating a vacuum in the tank starving the vehicle of fuel. Does the car stall when the cap is replaced?

What's causing the P0456 code?

  • A small leak in any of the EVAP hoses or fuel tank hoses
  • A small leak in the purge valve or vent valve
  • The EVAP Canister may be leaking- be sure fuel cap is sealing good, if in doubt replace fuel cap.

1990 VW Cabriolet Gas Smell and humming from gas cap...The smell and sound happens more frequently on warm/hot days. Gas cap seal has been replaced, but still having problems.

The humming noise is coming from the fuel pump.  Its possible its getting ready to fail.  These start making noise when they are going bad.  The smell can be coming from bad gas cap not sealing up fuel tank properly and or a fuel pump/sending unit seal.  You can pull the back seat bottom out easy enough by removing 2 5mm alan screws that secure it to the floor.  Remove the seat bottom buy pulling out and remove black cover under seat bottom that has 3 philips screws.  you may smell fuel more promanently here.
