2016 V6 Noisy Fuel Pump?

I have noticed a hum coming from the rear of my 2016 Accord V6, at idle with the fan & radio off. I think its resonating from the fuel pump. Not real loud but noticeable & always there. Anyone else notice this?

There was a thread about this a few days ago I think, multiple people hearing the same thing.

I haven't noticed it on my v6 though.

LOL aren't you the same guy who has the mysterious "whine" at 30 mph? Are you coming from a Lexus or something? I think you might be in the wrong car friend.

I'm the same guy! LOL Coming from a 2013 Accord EX-L 4 cylinder CVT. The noises are not mysterious, just noticeable. Thought the forum members could help determine if they are just normal for the V6, or not! Never noticed a whine or hum in my 2013.

You won't hear it on the 4 cyl because it's a different setup than your 6 cyl. The direct injection is noisy and the pump is a lifter pump instead of a pressurized pump.

Don't turn the fan and radio off?

Cars are machines. They make machine noises. Unless it is a screeching, grinding or popping noise you are okay.

In my Prelude I used to turn the ignition on, wait to hear the fuel pump spool up to build pressure and then start the car. That way I knew the pump was working and the engine didn't have to crank waiting for fuel pressure to build. If you know the normal noises of your car you are better prepared to tell when something doesn't sound normal. Point being, this noise is normal.

Agreed. Believe me you will know when something is wrong. Otherwise accept these noises as normal. Each make, each model will have different noises. Some are more prominent, some are less.
