..while i was driving, the engine suddenly was "choking" as if it had no air or gas, then stopped! then inside the car i can hear a "weeee" in the fuel are, is this the fuel pump malfunctioning? has anybody have this problem? then after about 5 to 6 times of restarting the car it worked! the engine was working nicely again... but the constant "weee" noise still exists in the back fuel area... anybody have an idea to my car's problem is?

It could be the fuel pump ... but might it also be the fuel filler cap as I thought that some cars use back pressure to pump the fuel through (could be wrong though), so if the fuel filler cap doesn't have a perfect seal then there may not be enough pressure for the fuel to be pumped ...


does the "weeee" sound like air is escaping? ...

the "wee" sounds like fuel inside the tank mixing and going nowhere...
as if there's no fuel when the tank is 3/4 full...
