Ok, I just changed my fuel pump and gasket. Before I changed these parts, the pump was making a high-pitched whining sound and the gasket around it was leaking for about 15 miles after I filled the tank up to the top. Now the pump will make a low-pitched gurgling sound that cycles on/off with the car running at idle.
Do you guys think I bought a bad "new" pump? Or perhaps there is air in the fuel tank or something? I'm really stumped on this as I was very careful assembling the fuel pump assembly and the car runs just fine aside from this noise. Maybe I messed something up assembling it?? .
I would think it would have running problems though if that was the case...
I'm also still smelling a bit of gas inside the car as I was when the gasket was leaking. I'm not sure if this is just residual from removing the pump earlier or if I have a leak somewhere else in the gas tank or what. I haven't filled the tank up all the way again yet as I'm letting the RTV sealant I put on the gasket dry completely.
