dannysayer, you haven't done a very good job of explaining the problems with my car!!

There is a knocking noise from the engine when the car is stationary.

There is a clunking noise when I change gear and take my foot back off the clutch.

When I start the engine, particularly when it's cold, the car will judder, shake and rev itself until it warms completely up (Usually about 7 minutes by the time I drive from work to home)

Does it need to be taken somewhere can anyone advise? It is out of warranty by a few months.

Depending on where the noise comes from this can indicate which fault it could be. Sounds like the differential if it stops knocking when you are in motion. Could be your big end also by sound of it. If it is coming from underneath, could be your wishbone or suspension arms.

If the car struggles to start i.e if its cold, then yes it smokes from exhaust but not black smoke.

Can I bring it in for you to have a look please?

Is it a costly job?

Thanks for looking at my car Chris, it was good advice you gave. I have written to Ford though because it's only 6 months out of warranty and only done 17,000 miles. Thanks again
