Default fuel pump?

2003 limited w 62k, today it was hard to start, ran rough for a short while and when I turned the key to the first position I heard a low hum from the back of the car, which I don't recall hearing before. Any ideas ? Thanks

How much gas is in the tank? If it is low you will hear the pump a little louder then when it's full. as for a hard start rough running I would start by checking your plugs and wires.

Most can here the pump at some point. These are not pronged to be a problem. So like above. Look for other issues. Get some Barryman's Chem tol B-12 for the tank. Can't hurt .
