    1.9 CDTi clonk shortly after starting

    Shortly after starting mt Astra SRi 1.9CDTi it clonks in the engine bay, I have had it 3 years now since new and its always done it. The dealer tells me nothings is wrong they checked it twice. Does anybody else have this clonk just the once after starting then never again. It sometines clonks just after pulling away?

    mine does exactly the same, i just think it is something kicking in but dont know what. Sounds like air-con or something, even tho air-con off. Dont think its a problem tho.

    if its the 'clonk' that happens when you get past about 13 mph just after you set off you'll find its something to do with ABS resetting itself, I'm a proudowner of the 'clonk' too
