Hey,
when i click onto acc's i can clearly hear that the fuel pump is grumbling
sorta sounds like a kettle boiling too,

to me this is a fuel pump is on its way out

is this what other people would think, or a fuel blockage

the car can rev fine for a while and then it cuts out

Hi, try a new filter first, but it does sound like the pump is on the way out.
Also, these pumps don`t like to be run at low fuel level too much. Over a period of time that causes them to run hot & noisy, eventually leading to low fuel pressure.
