You sure the whine is coming from the tank? If it ran quieter before, but now loud, not much you can do but replace it or drive it till it does something else-like stop working.

Constant whining noise from fuel pump


    1. Low Fuel

      Fuel pumps work by pressurizing the fuel and sending it to the engine. A low fuel level can cause the engine to work much harder to build the necessary pressure to pump the fuel. To analyze the problem, start the car when the fuel is low (below one-fourth tank) and listen for the sound. If the whine is audible, fill the tank immediately. When you start the vehicle again, the whine should be reduced or absent. If not, there may be another problem.
      Damaged Pump

      The whining noise may be caused by a damaged fuel pump. The fuel pump may be punctured or dented, reducing its efficiency. To resolve this issue, the fuel tank must be accessed and repaired or removed. The location of the fuel tank depends on the construction of the vehicle. In a vehicle equipped with a carburetor, the fuel pump is often located outside of the fuel tank. With a vehicle that has a fuel injector, the fuel pump is located inside of the tank. It is best to get a mechanic to address this problem.


      Impurities in Gas Tank and Engine

      • If the fuel pump is blocked by engine gunk, dirt, impurities in the gasoline or anything else, it will respond with a whine or some other very noticeable noise. Debris in the fuel tank can be sucked into the pump most easily when the tank is low. This debris gets caught in the pump and reduces the pressure. This problem must be fixed by removing the blockage which should be performed by a mechanic. Using fuel additives that clean the engine and keeping the fuel tank filled may also be a preventative measure.

    1988 jetta needs fuel filter and where is it? I run low on gas in it starts dying out is this the fuel pump or just a dirty fuel filter. I cab hear the whining under back seat.


    you may find the fuel filter underneath the vehicle near the rear wheel, running low on gas could be the problem, the whirring noise is most likely the fuel pump.....hope this helps.....cheers.

    I have a 91 buick century that suddenly dies and now is not getting any fuel. Possible bad fuel pressure regulator? or fuel vaccumm?


    Bad fuel pump maybe. Turn the car on and stand near the rear of the car. If the fuel pump is running, you will hear it. Very high pitched whining noise. If it is all quiet, the pump not running. GM fuel pumps are loud.

    Your fuel filter could be stopped up, injectors could be stopped up or there may even be a fuse for fuel. May also be your fuel pump, which is generally in the fuel tank. If you turn your ignition on, don't crank it, see if you can hear a whining noise coming from the gas tank neck(where you put the gas in). Hopefully that is NOT your problem.
