Hi All, I think my Emmisions Pump is running before I even start the motor. Is that normal? It is the pump located in the front of the front wheel well on the drivers side. It has a silver top on it. When I turn the key it starts running before I even start the engine. I am sure it is some type of vaccum pump because the lines are black and are vaccum lines. If any one has a clue if this is normal please let me know...Thanks

I believe what you a talking about is the ABS module (green arrow) This is not the item you are hearing though. The thing making that noise is the throttle body (red arrow) I think it has a cooling fan or something in it that turn on with the ignition on.

Wrong Place!!

It is the pump in the front of the wheel well, what you are showing is the back of the wheel well by the fire wall. I will check again and see if the sound is coming from the back, but I am sure it is the front... I removed the neg from the battery to get the computer to reset and hope that clears the problem if this is a problem.
