I have recently bought a GTV V6. When I start the car up (for the first 10 secs) there is a strange noise coming from the rear of the car (car stationary and at tick over). It sounds as if it comes from the fuel tank area. It is a strange sound something like a pump running then it dies away. It only happens when the car is stopped and then started again. Very odd??
Does anybody have any ideas?
It sounds like an electric fuel pump as bazza says wink
They often have to pump harder when the car starts up as the fuel and pump are in the back, and the engine is in ... the front. Then once the engine starts there is a constant flow of fuel which takes less effort.
Our 145 (same engine) makes a few clicks and whirrs for a while after start up.
