Hello:

I have an 84 4 cylinder manual tranny.

I turn on the key, I hear the fuel pump whir for a second or so followed by this curious burp. I assume it is associated with the pump because there is nothing else going on at that time.

What is it? Is it normal? Is my car gonna leave me on the highway one day soon? So many questions....

Thanks

Ty

A burp is usually air in the coolant. Lines from the gas tank are pretty small to emit a burp sound

Interesting coolant thought, but it only burps after the pump runs - right when it quits.

Thanks

Just a wild thought. Try it with the fuel CAP loose & see if it still does it.
