Haha, the struggle is real! Reminds me of when it cost me like 2 months driving without door panels while I was trying to figure out the wiring for my electric windows :O

This Basic 1.3 Yaris was passed down to me after my sister sold her TS 1.8 and moved to America... It feels like in Need for Speed: Most Wanted when your BMW gets taken away and you gotta start at the bottom again :P It feels good though, I have learnt a lot and met a lot of good people along the way :D

Guys, today I found that the car seems to be straining a bit on start up and tonight when I started it up again it was very weak and the pumped hummed instantly. My windows are also winding down noticeably slower. OMW, I'm starting to think it could be my battery playing up! :O Gonna have it checked out tomorrow and will let you all know what's happening.

Thank you! Even if the battery solves my issue I'd still make an effort to get the pump out for interest sake **

I seriously doubt a weak battery is going to make the fuel pump strain or hum. Nows the time to look for a used one if they sell used car parts in SA.

Sorry for the delay, but here are a few photos of the DIY tank lid tool I made. 1" steel pipe. We cut a 3" section off of the length of pipe I bought and then sliced it down the middle to make two half moon sections. I then welded them as you can see so that they will grip the teeth built into the lid. The length of the bar is 30" to give plenty of ability for torque to remove/reinstall. I have used it probably well over a dozen times with no issues. Hope this helps.

I appreciate it friend! I have been away and will only get to replacing the battery tomorrow and checking the charging system while I am at it. I'm gonna save these pictures and measurements and try to make it at work. It looks quite simple :D

Again, I appreciate your effort :)

Good luck and I hope you get it sorted.

I just love it when the OP tells us what happens instead of just disappearing.

Thumbs up Success!

I finally got to work on the fuel pump today. On removal I found some light oily dirt on the filter but nothing major. There was some oily fluid under where the pump sits but it was obviously stagnant. I cleaned it all up with earbuds and removed the physical pump out its enclosure. It looked good and sounded solid. I blew into it from both sides, shaked it a bit and knocked it a bit with my palm and reinstalled it. I then reinstalled the whole system, put back the fuse and started the car.

I took it for a 10 minute drive and tried everything including driving very fast, very slow, uphill and hitting the limiter in neutral. I came back home and it was so silent I swear I could only hear the fluid being pumped, it was death silent

I think in the end just taking the system in and out shaked whatever was wrong back into place. I can't remember it ever being this silent!!

Many thanks to you guys for helping me out with the creation of the removal tool and the tips to depressurize the system, I am a very happy man today..

Here are just some pictures for what it's worth **

Glad to hear that you were able to get it all squared away.

Awesome it runs to your satisfaction!

But keep that tool you made to get the pump out!

Thanks again for posting what happened and for the pics.

Ahh damn, 2 days of perfect silence.. I went for some speedy driving last night and when I reached my destination I heard the whine. This morning on the way to work (and driving like a normal person) it also reappeared. :( I understand that the faster you drive, the faster the pump must pump, right? So in the end I should maybe look at replacing it with a 2nd hand one. Luckily I haven't assembled the inside of my cabin yet.

Does anyone know whether the Yaris pump is used in other Toyota cars? That could aid in my search for a second hand one **

I wouldn't buy a used one if it were me unless you knew where it came from. Perhaps CTScott has one from that LB he broke down?

Also I can't recall if I have my stock one left or not. I would have to check my parts bins.

Has there ever been an actual issue with performance, or is this strictly a noise issue?

If that's the case then why not just let it whine and save your money? I guess the issue is that you're thinking the pump could be on its way out and you don't want to be stranded if that's the case. Not an easy call since they aren't cheap to buy new

No problem performance wise, but the tone of the whine is insane. If I remember I will try and record it.

I found these cheap ones on eBay but I'm not too willing to take a chance on parts that aren't genuine, although physically they are identical: eBay
