I'm having a conumdrum people

I'm going to try to explain this problem the best I can. When I turn the key into the on position, it makes a noise; the noise is kinda like the antenna going up, but it's not the antenna. It kinda sounds like an airplane like shhhrrrrrrrrrr. It lasts about 3 sec. It also does it at idle constantly. When I get out of the car I can hear it going from the back wheels. It never did this before. Any ideas of what this could be?


thanks,

miata

If it the fuel pump was bad wouldn't it hesitate or something? Drivability is unaffected.

Re: I'm having a conumdrum people

Is it going bad then, or is this just something preludes do? I would hate to get stranded somewhere.

Re: I'm having a conumdrum people

Definitely sounds like a fuel pump man. Maybe it's just going out? They're supposed to do it when you turn the ignition switch to on for a few secs, but not constantly.

Re: I'm having a conumdrum people

The ABS pump also makes a similar noise once you select a gear and start moving.

Not very hard. I know we have a write-up (or at least one in progress) around here somewhere. Basically, remove the back seats, unscrew a few screws, remove the cover, remove old pump, installation is reverse of removal.

Re: I'm having a conumdrum people

mine makes the noise to. we had a thread on this a little while back and i think the consensus was that if you hear something..... then it's generally a good thing because it means it's working.
this being sad. i'm personally not going to worry about mine, but if you feel the need to replace or check, the pump isn't hard to get to.

Re: I'm having a conumdrum people

^^ I don't have an abs light on; it just doesn't work. I never owned a car with abs, but i was under the impression one shouldn't be able to lock up the brakes by smashing on them.

Re: I'm having a conumdrum people

Went outside and turned car into on position and the abs light lit up like the others, so the light is working. I've only had this prelude for 2 weeks and it seems like everything is going wrong

Yes, the light will come on if the fuse is blown or removed.
