One of those questions...

Recommended Posts

I am getting an intermittent whining noise (sounds like a small electrical motor) coming from near the drivers side rear tire.

This is where it is most audible for casual listening.

It is most noticeable after longer periods of travel.

2000 GMC Yukon XL.

What's your best guesses...?

Does the noise get louder at higher speeds, or is it there all the time, parked, and driving? Does it get louder under accel, or decel?

With out hearing the noise, I would have to say fuel pump also.

It sounds by what you posted, the veh. is parked and you are going to the wheel well.

This is with out hearing the answers to 4EW's questions.

I'll fourth th[e fuel pump.

The only time you have to worry is when you do not hear it!! grin

When was the last time you changed your fuel filter. It probably will not quite it down but it could be the source of the problem. They all make that noise at some point so its nothing really to worry about unless, like I said, you don't hear it.

The noise is not there when I start the vehicle in the mornings or after sitting for a few hours. The noise does not increase or decrease with acceleration use.

I have not changed out the fuel filter in some time and will do so at the next oil change. blush

She is a good old horse with about 150,000 turns on her.

Thanks for the guesses as fuel pump was my initial thought...

Fuel pump noise may get louder as you burn off fuel. A full tank will dampen the sound a bit, plus the pump will get louder as it gets hot. Quick way to check,and you can do this with most engine noises also. Start it up or leave it running when it is making the noise, take a stethiscope or if you don't have one, a long piece of metal( socket extention, screw driver, or metal rod) put it against the tank or whatever you think is making the noise, squeeze it tight in your hand and put your ear against your hand. You will hear the same noise or not. If not, move it to another place on the vehicle where the noise seams to be coming from. Be sure to check a few more place once you locate the noise to pin point it. I hope this helps, I have done it many times this way out in the field.

Or, when it is making the noise, have someone else shut off the truck while you listen. If it is the fuel pump, it will normally run a few seconds after the engine is shut off.

    • Good job!  I have never found any Blacks so they look a little different.  Can you take a picture of what they look like cut in half? They look a little scary like False Morel's 
    • I picked for about 2 hours this morning. I'm not exactly haw many I got but its enough for a couple meals. I'm going to chop some of these up and mix with some cream cheese, feta cheese and garlic chives and then stuff some chicken breasts and cook them on the grill. The little bit of rain that we got last week helped the shrooms pop but it really didn't do much else for the woods besides help the mosquito's hatch. There were so many they licked the bug spray off first then swarmed. I found the mushrooms all over, North, South, East and West facing hills. Normally spot 1 has the best results but this trip it was my second spot. All of them had pretty good size too. Only a few that were in direct sunlight were dried up otherwise they are very firm. Spot 1 is the left container. Don't worry, I use a mesh bag while I'm out in the woods!
    • Yup.... 6 & 4 for Lead.... 4 & 2 for steel
    • I ended up framing my house, putting on the T&G , and then spray foaming back against the interior, which may be why I am not seeing any movement... I also used pine vs cedar
    • I agree with the guy who agreed with the other guy.
    • Just wait till they come up with the remote submarine drone with 3d high resolution camera that can see through algae and milfoil and transmit to your eyewear in 3d.   I struggle with properly tying a berkley knot......
    • I agree with rundrave. #4 early and #2 shot later in year
    • Yes, 5/16 T&G I installed last fall. I did the same, but I see this summer it's starting to buckle  
    • Adding a 4th wouldn't do much IMO. The map screen is already too small to be useful when screen is split in 3. I added a Helix 7 G2N to use as a map screen. Networked with other 2 units
    • I could always go and spend more money on an additional unit but some of it is like Floyd said. I have a hard enough time watching one screen. I have the app on my phone. I think that lowrance has the ability to split the screen into 4. I just can't believe I'm the only person who would like to see this but maybe I am. It may not be as big a deal once I get more familiar with the unit. Right now I like to look at all the screens to help discern what it is im seeing on the screen.  I appreciate the input!
