    Default Knocking after oil change! Help please guys

    Hi guys

    Just used a pump to pump the oil out through the dip stick (dunno if you need to know that but I thought I'd start from the beginning)

    Changed filter.. Took the restrict or out the air box.

    Filled again put just over 4l so full on dip stick. Started up and a horrible knocking noise. It didn't go away when pressing clutch. But I took it for a drive and got it up to temperature and it's not doing it atm.

    Is this normal while the oil is going round the engine. I'm at a friends at the moment about 6 miles from home am I ok to drive it. Or just over worried because it's a new car!

    It's a signum 1.9 150 cdti 2006
