yeah probably on its way out... being the case it has just started making the zzz sound, it will probably last a hell of a long time before it goes. i wouldn't worry about it

That zzzzz noise is normal.If it lasts for 5 seconds then I think that shows that your ECU is working properly.

It will get louder as the fuel level goes down. Particularly under a 1/4 tank.

You will hear the fuel pump prime everytime you first turn on the accessories. Its completely normal.

Make sure you always run more than a 1/4 tank and it will be fine.
