If you run the fault codes you will probably get a code that refers to the cannister venting system. I would say that the gasket for where the pump went in is leaking and that noise is the tank venting air or vacuum as the case may be.
It is always a good idea that when finishing the job and something is not as it was then go back to what you have done and do it again as it will be simple,

SOURCE: How to replace a fuel filter for a Mitsubishi Mirage 2000

There is have to remove the rear seat cushion,then remove the service cover and then detach the fuel pump harness connector.Start the car and allow it to run until the engine stalls.Turn the key to off position.Then disconnect the negative battery cable, attach the fuel pump connector, and install the access cover. Now place shop rags or towels around the fitting that is being disconnected. Loosen the filter feed pipe flare nut on the bottom of the filter.Seperate the flare nut from the filter. If equiped, remove and discard the gakets. remove the mounting bolts and remove the filter.if necessary remove the filter bracket. To install: install the filter to it's bracket only finger tight. Make sure the flow arrow is in the right direction. Make sure new O rings are installed prior to installation. Insert the filter feed pipe to the lower connection of the filter and manually screw in the main pipe's fare nut. While holding the fuel filter nut with a back-up wrench, tighten the banjo bolt to 22 ft pounds and tighten the flare nut to 25 with a back-up wrench on the nut. tighten the filter mounting bolts to 10 ft. pounds. Connect negative battery cable. turn key on to pressurize the fuel system and check for leaks. If repairs on the fuel system are needed remember to release the pressure before opening the fuel system. Hope this helps. Good luck!

2000 Mitsubishi mirage 1.8 ltr 4g93 ran out of gas now it wont start. How do i get it started again.

Spray starting fluid into the air intake of the engine, it will start, if it dies out then you have burned out the electric fuel pump located inside the fuel tank, the reason is that when you run out of fuel the pump overheats and the shaft seizes up. You should never let the fuel level go below 1/8 tank on the gauge, the pump is cooled and lubricated by the gasoline it sits in, no fuel no cooling or lubrication.

My 2000 Mitsubishi mirage de 1.8ltr ran out of gas i have added more gas now it wont start.

when my car did the same thing, I found out it was my fuel pump, which is used to being in liquid and therefore had dried up and then seized up. you can test it by disconnecting the fuel line from the tank to the engine and pouring a small amount of gas into the line...if it starts up or even turns over, then you know that it is the pump...good luck

1995 Mitsubishi mirage. no gas to fuel injector and i do not hear the fuel pump when i turn on the ignition switch. also gas tank is full and the fuel gage reads empty on the dash board. can not locate...

i would replace the fuel pump. and the reason your gas gage is not reading what it is supposed to be is because the sending unit is prob bad. both of which are in the gas tank. im not sure on that year but i think you can remove the back seat or a piece of the trunk to get to both of them. if not the gas tank will need to be dropped to get them out

No fuel pressure, does this car have an electric fuel pump in the tank?

Yes the fuel pump is located in the gas tank .There is a access panel under the rear seat .So the rear bottom part of the seat has to be removed.Push on the front of the rear seat while lifting up that should loosen the seat so it will come out then you will see the access panel to get to the fuel pump.
