    Should I Be Worried?

    Started up the car this morning and it shook quite violently for the first 30 secs, then it seemed to get less noticeable
    Car engine seemed quite loud but after a few mins everything was normal?

    Is this a problem that could get worse?
    Any Ideas?

    I have an Astra 1.6 16v
    2002 model on 75,000

    Car has been fine since
    Nothing wrong with it
    Now I come to thik of it... This happened on Monday morning
    I didn;t drive my car at all saturday night, I started my car up sunday morning (about 4 in the morning) and moved it a few foot across the drive to let the van out.
    Then I left my car untouched all sunday until monday morning

    Could it be anything to do with me starting the engine up and turning it off after about 5 secs?
    The leaveing it until the enxt day?

    Time of the month, mine did the same thing last week, seems to happen to me every 6 months or so, I put it down to moisture somewhere.
