There is a strange noise coming from around my gas tank, a constant running, humming. Just finished filling the tank. When I tried to start the car, it just quits.

i think you might be hearing your electric fuel pump. most likely the noise of the engine muffles it out when running.

My car makes a droning or humming sound around 2000 rpm along with vibration but it goes away as soon as I increase the speed or come to a stop.

could be the timing belt tensioner. with the timing casing removed place a socket extension bar on some metal then to your ear as it will help you locate the noise. be careful tho. failing that big end shells i would check. hope this helps

1987 Ford Econoline fuel system

First check fuse in fuse box that powers fuel pump. If this is ok then turn key but do not start just till gage lights come on and listen for humming noise in gas tank, it will only run a few seconds so you might have to do this several times to hear it. Is best to have someone listen around gas tank area while you turn key..If you do not hear humming noise then this would indicate that pump is not working and needs to be replaced.....good luck and if this info is a help then Please rate my post...

Turns over but wont start

try this , turn key on without trying to start and listen for humming sound coming from tank. would be better to have someone listen around gas tank while you turn key. if no noise or humming this may indicate that fuel pump is bad.....check fuses first...if you find that this isent the case then check the fireing system,eastest way is check to see if spark plugs are getting fire......after checking this fill free to contact me for more info.....good luck..

When ignition is on then starter is engaged gas stops flowing through fuel filter

Sounds like the fuel pump has went bad...the fuse first it may be blown and if this is not the case the you can turn the key on but dont try to start it,just trun it on and listen for a humming noise in the gas tank.maybe have someonelisten around gas tank while you turn the key. if you hear nothing then this would indicate that fuel pump is not working..Best way to find out is have a pressure test run on fuel system. Car does not have to run to preform this test...I alway just do the listen way and it hasent failed me yet.....hope this info helps and if so Please rate my post and good luck...if more help is needed fill free to contact me .....

Fuel gauge not working dodge intrepid 2002

A mechanic would check for voltage from the gauge at the sending unit connector at the tank. The sending unit grounds the gauge on the dash.
Not sure what the humming noise is, the computer controls the gas tank venting by a solenoid and the vapor canister.

Car will not start

For clarification:
When you turn the key to start, the engine will not roll over?
When you turn the key to the run position, do you here the fuel pump prime, a humming noise from the gas tank?
Have you replaced any other electronic components, key cylinder, body control module?
Let me know.
