    Default High pitched whinning noise.

    When my car is ticking over, theres a continuous high pitched whinning noise thats coming from the engine bay. Is this just the fuel pump or is that in the fuel tank ?
    It's not a worrying noise, i'm just curious as to what it is.
    Car is a 2.0T.


    Have consideration for the deaf, if you're gunna fart, make it smell !
