2006 Volkswagen Jetta • 36,000 miles

I have a 2006 Volkwagon Jetta 2.5I hear a strange "tick-tick--tickkktick---tick" sound coming from the right hand back side of my car. As if someone is knocking my back door with an inconsistent frequency. It usually starts during the "first acceleration cycle - after ignition". And goes away after 2-3 minutes. The sound is audible both from within and outside the cabin. And it doesn't matter whether the car is moving or staionary. It will stay for sometime and will be gone after I drive 100 - 200 meters.I'm wondering what this sound is all about.

EVAP LDP (Leak Detection Pump). Part of the OBD System to monitor
Fuel Tank Pressure.

If your MIL light is off, I would not worry. If the noise gets really loud, then it is not normal. Typically you should hardly hear the EVAP or fuel system working. If it's real audible inside the cabin, then you do have an issue.
