    Default odd starting issue - CDTI 150

    on my new XP CDTI 150, I have an odd starting issue

    Cold starts are fine, but when the engine has been running for some time, if I re-start after say an hours driving, there's more of a clunk and a little rattle. If I repeat the starting this gets worse....
    Runs perfectly well when driving

    This also doesn't happen every time,.. it's quite random

    Any ideas?....

    Starter motor maybe?

    Also, try pressing the clutch to the floor as you start the car. See if that makes any differene too

    it turns over well enough so would this rule out the starter motor?....

    I have neard of the starter causing vibrations/rattling as it's operated, even if it spins quickly...
