Humming sound at startup


Recommended Posts

Hello again all,

 

Recently my truck has started making a high-pitched "MMMMMMM" sound in the engine compartment, that will last for a few seconds and then stop. It will then do it again a couple of times before ceasing.

 

You can feel a slight vibration if you have your foot on the brake pedal.

 

It sounds like it may be a pump doing its thing, but I don't think it should be making such a noticeable noise. Performance is unchanged.

 

Any ideas or suggestions for things to be looked at? Brake fluid level and all other fluid levels seem ok.

 

Thanks in advance.
