I have a 2001 VW Passat V6 tiptronic. It has 35k miles.

I am experiencing a loud ticking sound when the car is cold. Primarily, it is occurring in reverse but you can also hear it in drive. It occurs when I back down my driveway and goes away in drive after the first 50 feet. It seems to be louder the colder the outside air temperature is and when the car has not been driven in a while (like over a weekend).

Any suggestions about what may be causing this?

When you start it in the morning, how cold is it outside? Noises are the hardest things to diagnose without actually hearing them yourself, but I'll give it my best shot.
