Hey, take this to an exhaust place and get them to check your catalatic converter. they shouldn't charge you for looking. If the noise is a motor noise from the tank it may simply be the fuel pump. I am not sure about this type of car but that may be the design of the pump. Good luck

Fuel pump replaced 3 times. Now gasoline is pouring out underneath

The fuel pump is located inside the fuel tank. It's possible that the last time it was replaced, one of the fuel line connections was left loose. Have it checked out immediately!

Rumbling noise under neath car

I am at a loss knowing what gear box your referring to and if the rumbling noise began before or after changing the box. There are many things that could simply be loose underneath a vehicle. A wheel bearing can definitely make a rumbling noise. Sure you changed the right one. Can be hard to tell which one sometimes. Sorry I couldn't help more than I did.

How do I remove gasoline in my diesil 2004 dodge 2500

My girlfriend did this to my super duty ford. It's a pain, drop the tank, dispose of fuel, remove fuel lines at injectors or rail or filter, blow lines out towards removed tank with compressed air (not to high of psi) reinstall tank & lines, prime system with good fuel. Start truck. Maybe run some fuel treatment for a tank or two. Good luck.

When filling with gasoline it shuts off many times

the vent is the small tube that runs down the side of the filler neck make sure it is not kinked or blocked of. dust and dirt would not do this unless it's accualy in the tank

Gas gage allways says full 1999 gmc serria

sender unit is stuck. this is inside the tank and is like a float. when its full the float is at the top, and vice versa. you might be able to access it through a cover plate in the boot but otherwise its a tank-off job. refer to a haynes manual for replacement techniques.

Rumbling noise on a low speed between 25-40 miles

Does it sound like an exhaust pipe hitting the floor, or is it a different sound?

My 2004 GMC Envoy SLT has 7,500 miles and due to the fact that I've been working overseas for the past 5 years, it's been sitting in storage, with frequent start-ups and is driven every couple of weeks....

While it never hurts to change the fluids, that may be unnecessary in some instances. The oild should likely be changed, as well as a new filter. The coolant may not need to be changed since it is designed for about 100,000 to 150,000 miles. The transmission fluid and brake fluid will be okay, as will the power steering fluid. The gasoline may be a different story unless you have added the necessary additives. Not certain how many gallons may be in your tank, but if it's all of that age and has not been stabilized I would recommend draining the tank (and maybe changing the fuel filter once you have burned through a few tanks of gasoline. the fuel filter in underneath the vehicle, costs about $20 for the part and $20-30 labor to replace.

Fuel Filter Location

I called the dealer and the dealer said it does not have an in-line fuel filter, but there is one the fuel tank (actually, it is a fuel pump strainer part#FS233 for $10.oo).
Put the rear seats down and open the trunk for ventilation and open the gas cap for gasoline pressure release.
The fuel pump cover is right behind the rear car seats in the trunk.
Be very careful when messing with gasoline. I will be replacing the strainer this weekend, but I plan to siphon out the gasoline before I do (I just feel safer with the tank empty)
