Hi ;

I recently had a new fuel pump installed. Since then there is a new sound to my car when I turn the key to the on position. (I turn it to On and wait till the pump does its thing then I start the car..easier starting 4 me) so..now when I turn the key to On there is a double 'click' noise coming from the drivers side engine area before the fuel pump engages..any ideas?

Thanks

Can anyone else confirm that this sound is normal? I ask ONLY because I have *never* heard my car make this noise in the past, and as I said, I always turn the key to On, wait for normal fuel pump sound and then start it... I assume I would've heard it in the past 159,000kms?

its a normal procedure when u wait to start the car....i do the same thing w/ my car....turn the key and wait for the fuel lines to do its thing, then start the car.....

no worries :thumbs:

Ok, well you guys say that sound is normal..and so did the mechanic..HOWEVER, after mentioning it to the mechanic and he had the car for a few hours to do both front hubs..the sound suddenly is Not there anymore! I suspect he fixed something without acknowledging his past mistake.
