On my 2001, I hear a device periodically operating. Sounds like a
vacume or compressor pump. What is it ? ...

The water pump that stores the hot water from the engine after you turn
it off?

That didn't appear until Gen2.

Since the OP said "periodically" instead of "after startup", that
pumplike noise might simply be the engine as it runs and stops. At
speed, general noise masks it.
