I just purchased a 82 380SL.<br><br>
It is in fine shape but I have a question that maybe this group can <br><br>
answer.<br><br>
When the car is running there is a whining sort of noise or maybe a <br><br>
high pitched hum sound that is coming from the back of the car on the <br><br>
passenger side in the truck.<br><br>
Is this the fuel pump and if so is this normal.<br><br>
<br><br>
<br><br>
Thanks

Yes Ed it is the fuel pumps. It is normal to hear them whine when the car is running. Also if the odometer is 100G or more they may need replacing.100G is about the life of fuel pumps on these cars.<br> <br> John Moore
