04 V8 Fuelpump function
One of the fuelpumps in my 04 V8 started to run now and then.
The usual priming, when opening drivers door for example, works.
But since some months the pump runs occasionally even while driving.
As example, standing still in D waiting for green, the pump may start and run for some 10 seconds and then stop.
If I touch the throttle the pump may start to run again for a little while.
Sometimes the pump starts and runs for some time while driving.
Has anyone an idea why this behavior has come up?
I would say it's escalating and I wonder if I'm going to be stuck somewhere soon?
The car drives well though, for the moment anyway.
