Start up noise


Recommended Posts

You mean when you turn the key to third position before turning the engine over? If so I believe that's the fuel pump engaging



+1... happens each time you start the engine. Do you notice if the sound originates from behind you?

I've wanted to ask this question since I got the car and just keep forgetting.


When you first turn on the key and it starts up there is a noise like someone stepping on dogs toy squeaker. I know, sounds stupid doesn't it????




Definitely the fuel pump. I always turn the key to the on position a few seconds before turning to the ignition position. I kind of think of it as an "arming" phase (=
