1994 Nissan XE Pickup Fuel Pump Noise???

I am having an intermittent noise problem in the rear of my 1994 Nissan 4 cyl. pickup that's sometimes quite noticeable when I am stopped, out of gear and idling. It's louder than a hum but not a roar. (high pitched electric motor sound ?). Seeing I'm at a standstill and nothing is moving in the rear, it can't be much that I am aware of other than the fuel pump or something associated. How can I determine if the fuel pump or the regulator is the culprit?

    Okay CMV9. Any idea about how I can determine if it's the pump regulator that's actually creating the situation? My understanding is that a faulty regulator can be what actually causes the fuel pump to make abnormal noise.

    When taking your advice the fuel pump sound was the normal low sound I've had for many years. Just barely audible. Normal fuel pump sound. Not like the sound that I get after usage and idling. Some times I do not even get it after normal usage. Other times I do. I do note that it's more frequent after trips of 50 - 60 miles, or more. Even then though it's not all the time. Idling in clogged traffic seems to make it more frequent too.

    Okay. Thanks CMV9. I suspicioned that would be the answer.

Here is how you can tell it is the fuel pump. turn your truck off. than have someone turn the ksy into the on position while they do that stand back at the end of the truck where the gas tank is located. when they key is switched to the one position thhe fuel pump should kick on and make a humming noise. if it is the same noise you hear when your ideling than that is you culprit.... my suburban does the same thing.

    there is no way to test a fuel regulator. if it is going out than it wil make a huming or rattling noise. but there is no way to test to see if it is bad or not.

I have a 1994 Nissan pickup. v6 manual trans. I get a loud hum as I drive. But when I press the clutch in, the hum stops. release clutch and hum starts. Could this be the Clutch fan?


No, By pushing in the clutch to stop the hum all you are stopping from turning is the transmission and ( transfur case if 4 wheel drive ) the engine is still running ..and some parts in the rear differential . I have had 4 nissan pickups and currently drive a 1995 pickup, without actually hearing the noise I would look toward the transmission, these Manual transmissions are very prone to bearing failure. This has happened to 2 of the one's I have had including the one I have now. You can also see as time goes by if the noise is quieter in fourth gear than others because this is direct drive and not as many trans bearings are involved Good Luck

1997 nissan pickup 4wd, just had timing chain replaced , now have noticeable knocking noise coming from valve cover ? mechanic says need new stack shims on valve rockers ?


Not likely. You have a 4 cyl engine with over head cam. It has hydrolic lifters. If it wasn't making the noise before he replaced the chain, then its something he did...or didn't do. If it was making the noise before, most common reason would be 1 or more lifters not pumping up. If you have a six cyl, no one changed the timing chain, (It doesn't have one!) The 3.0 6cyl has a belt.
