    Default Clanking On Start-Up

    Well yet another issue raises it's head....

    When i start from cold it starts fine...but when it's been run and it's warm and say you goto the shop come out start her up when the starters engaging(it winds over for a few seconds then on intial start-up it clanks) i get a terrible clanking when the car starts...alot of engine movement as well....
    It sounds terrible to be honest...it feels as the starters clanking or not meshing correctly????
    Its embarassing to be honest with the noise sounds like somethings gonna fall off...even the other half said it's loud and she doesnt moan...

    It's had 2-flywheels on it within the last 4months....theres no rattle from the gearbox with the clutch in/out...

    It's out of manufacturers warrenty end of this month so want it sorting but my worry is if it causes any other damage....

    Any ideas guys

    This is the problem...all big items have been changed..it runs spot-on apart from this clanking on start-up...i suspect starter for some reason but just want it confirming.

    So to get rid i'm not so sure...allthough issues have cropped up all the big money items have been changed.
