the return line returns to a tank with fuel, when fuel at pressure hits more fuel noises happen:D

Ford put a rubber tip on the return line to spread out the fuel so it doesnt splash or gurgle, doesnt work so hot:rolleyes:

Actually, I would guess that your fuel tank vent is not venting properly. This can create a vacuum in the fuel tank that can starve the engine for fuel.

So i would check that.

remove the gas cap and try it again, the vent is the line to the carbon canister which is roughly about a foot below the passenger side headlight
