Has anybody experienced this?
On turning on the ignition, I can hear the fuel pump softly ticking for a few seconds as it primes. Today, on then starting the engine, a much louder quite fast and regular "tapping" sound started up from somewhere in the right rear corner of the car. Upon depressing the accelerator, the sound stopped, but started again once I released the accelerator.
I turned the ignition off, and repeated the start procedure. Once again, the loud tapping sound, but this time there was a delay between when the engine started and the starting of the tapping. Again it disappeared when I depressed the accelerator.
After driving the car a short distance, the noise disappeared, and has not recurred since.
Any thoughts anyone?
