Engine knock/thump on start up
« on: 11 March 2019, 02:08:20 PM »
Now that the chains have been done, I decided to take the car to work this morning - I have not used it  since I picked it up on Friday.

As I started it, there was a thump/knock noise as it fired. Just a single event, not a repeated knocking. I suspect they have had to disturb the engine mount on the driver's side to access the chains.

Any thoughts? It didn't do it before I had the chains done.

I'll drop WMSS a note to see what they think....may be something simple.......
