Lately there has been a rather loud clunk noise coming from the engine as I'm starting the car. It actually has only happened about 3 times in 2 weeks but I was just wondering if anyone had any idea of what this could be?
 
You know, I have a similar sound that is intermittent. Kind of sounds like timing chain slop. Another, more experienced Cruiserhead friend of mine heard it one time and indicated that it was common and not to worry about it, but I can't for the life of me remember what he thought it was. I do recall him recommending me to clean the throttle body and it should go away, which I have yet to do.:eek:
