    Intermitant clunk and grind on start up

    I have an astra sri and i have an intermitant issue with my car currently.
    The issue i have is sometimes on startup i have a grind and clunk on start up. Back in Oct 2007 i had the fly wheel changed due to this noise i am experianceing currently. Since this was done i have had issues with 1st gear and reverse again clunking intermitantly.

    The car has been back into vauxhall 8 times with this issue and is currently back in the garage. Then excuse thay give me is they can't find the problem i am having.

    This is very frustrating for me , can anybody ive any advice concerning my issue i have.

    Thanks

    It's the ABS doing it's self test. It does it around 5-7mph the first time you drive off after starting the engine.

    It's never done this before. I have only had this problem since they changed the fly wheel back in Oct 2007
