loud whining fuel pump

i have a 93 325i and my fuel pump is really loud. it whines loud, i think more after the car gets warmed up. idunno if this is normal or what. my friend told me that walbro fuel pumps whine, but i doubt if i have a walbro considering the car is all stock at the moment.

Yep, sounds like its dying... could also be clogged up with debris, but more likely.. it's dying. Walbro fuel pumps do whine louder than stock fuel pumps though.

im gonna have to say yes (since justin said so too ), the motor has to work harder now to pump that fuel in or the motor (that works the pump) itself is on its way out, i suggest replaceing it soon before you get stuck on the side of the road somewhere, you definately dont want that to happen
