    Buzzing / clicking fuel pump

    Hello Ant!

    Can you tell me if the fuel pump on an 86 suzuki super carry (Romahome demountable) is supposed to make a clicking noise? The noise changes speed frequently, from a couple of clicks per second to almost a buzz. Maybe it's ok, but it's the first car Ive had that's done it! (I think!)

    Thanks!

    Hi,
    Found some info for you re fuel pump ticking/buzzing,
    You can hear the pump as the fuel is used when running,
    But the buzzing sound!! could be many things,
    Better check it out, rather than be caught out on the road!

      Thanks Pete! Your link contained what I was after:

      "On the carbed suzi's the pump always makes a clicking sound when operating.Turn key on with all accessories off and you should hear a click,click,click. When it is running it should click constantly. No noise =problems"

      So seems all is fine! Saved me 50 quid and a faff!

            When you turn the ignition on the clicking is quite rapid, wait until it slows before trying to start the engine and you'll find it starts more readily. If it clicks at an almost buzzing rate you've run out of fuel!
