hi guys.
hopped in the ba this morning to go to work, flicked the keys on to second spot (reds) and noticed the fuel pump was a fair bit noisyer than normal.
as i normally wait for the fuel system to prime before starting.

also last week on a long trip up a bit of a hill full throttle igher up in the revvs it sounded like it was leaning out / detonating a bit.

safe to assume fuel pump is dieing a slow painful death?

Fuel pump is pretty quiet on mine man, as in I dont think i have ever heard it, so Id get it checked out before it just drops out on you like it did in my old vectra, RACV guy hit the tank with a hammer to start it, so if you get stranded you could give that a go, but might not work on a ford, holdens are a bit strange like that, need a beating to make them work...
But Id get that looked at before it gets you stuck somewhere.
