Fuel filter whistling

We had the fuel filter replaced after 4 years and now we hear a strange whistling noise. We took the car back and was told it is normal if you have not replaced if for a long time. Service was done about 3 days ago.

SOURCE: 2003 vw jetta tdi fuel filter

It is on the passenger side right behind the washer fluid fill tube. You can follow the fuel lines (look like 1/4" black tubes, some are clear) from the injector pump to it. It is a caniser a bit bigger than a normal looking oil filter and sits between the washer bottle and the metal that forms the wheel well. It is held in by a screw type clamp about half way down the cylinder. Probably isn't the fuel filter unless there is air in the lines to the injector pump or they didn't bother to fill the fuel filter up with diesel after putting it in. There is not a fuel pump in the tank in these cars so everything is sucked up by the injector pump and it needs to be primed properly.

SOURCE: 95 Jetta won't start consistently

Probably a good idea to change filter. Gas in oil due to attempted starts and flooding. Additives will draw out water and make white smoke. Been there, seen it. New gasahol will separate within 6 months and will draw and accumulate moisture like diesel. Since no default lights are on you could still try autoparts store like Autozone or similar and ask for test but without faults probably a no show. The additives could cause high idle until you are burning 100% gas. Check to see if all vacuum lines are correct after removing air filter.

This sounds like a bad control or broken wire inside the door, you will need to remove the door panel and check for broken wires, also remove the controls and make sure all connectors are connected good and tight, this is where i would start also just check all of the fuses.

When my car is running their is this whistling noise which comes from the gas tank. what can that be?

Hello albertdavido: My name is Roger and I will help you. The noise you hear should be the fuel pump running. If the noise is excessive i would suggest replacing the fuel filter. When the fuel is restricted the pump will be exceptionally noisy. Should you need further help lease just ask. Please rate the answer. Thank You for trusting and using Fix Ya .Roger

The fuel pump is located on top and inside the fuel tank. A failing fuel pump sometimes will just fail and the vehicle will not run. Other times it will be weak and the vehicle will be hard to start or stall. First thing to do is replace the fuel filter. A fuel pressure test will verify if the pump is failing or failed.

My car wants to start but just won't turn over my brother took off the air filter and sprayed some carbrator stuff while I tried to start and it turned over...fuel pump? some one told me to check the fuse,...

Turn the key to the "on" position and listen for the fuel pump. You may need to get under and clase to the fuel tank to hear the pump. Fuse good - No noise, bad pump is usually the problem.

its proberly what they call a secondary air intake pump - what this does is increase the air flow only on cold start up - the colder it is the longer it stays on - if the noise gets louder and you will notice - get it changed - we have the same problem over here on the vauxhall omega and corsa's - bless em got to be GM

2001 Monte Carlo - brakes squeal "whistle"

Actually - I had the same problem and replaced my brakes 4 times in a year. YES 4 TIMES because of the whistling. I switched from metallic to ceramic pads and works like a charm! Ceramic will not allow the noise, plus I have found to have much better control over braking and short distances.

Can hear a click at fuel pump but no it the fuel pump??

Was it a factory GM pump? Check for power at the Grey wire going into the pump it should have 12V for 2 seconds after you turn on the key so you cant do it by yourself get someone else to either turn on the key or watch the test light, If you have no fuel pressure but have 12V for 2-3 seconds then you have a bad pump and be sure to double check the Ground make sure its clean and secure also change the fuel filter at the same time. Forget the oil changes they do nothing for the car oh yea change it one every 4 or 5 years is way fiine but change the fuel filter EVERY EVERY 15,000 miles no matter what. If this information helps please give me a fixya rating.
Oh yea make sure you buy a Factory GM pump you'll be gald you did,

sounds like you may have to replace your fuel filter is it origional or have you replaced it before ? if the fuel pump is screaming then there is usually a restriction in the line sometimes caused by dirty fuel filter , its also possible that the electric fuel pump is on its way out they will screem when they are ready to retire first replace fuel filter and monitor the sound if it comes back after replacing the filter then you will need to have a pump replaced .also check the level of fuel in your tank when you hear the noise sometimes the level of gas in the tank drops leaving the fuel pump unsubmerged in the fuel making it easier to hear the noise follow me . replace fuel filter and diagnose the sound from there thanks for using a fine web tool like fixya
