The buzzing noise thread.

I recall reading a thread a while back about noises coming from the car after you shut off the engine.. but for the life of me I can't find it (i've found a bunch of clicking noise threads, but that's about it). Wanted to read it as I just started hearing this loud buzzing noise coming from the car after I shut the engine off (this is standing outside).. lasts for a few seconds (10-15) and then all of a sudden there's this clunk (like someone kicked over a bucket of water) and the buzzing stops. curious. i'm sure i read a thread about it?

What I have heard is sound like that of crushing a can after the car is turned off, but that's just the metal reacting with the change in temperature and contracting

I would guess you're talking about this thread:

The consensus seems to be that it's the EVAP system doing its checks.

I believe that's the fuel pump switching off.
