good call: jrgill, add this to your troubleshooting list. "Depress clutch, see if noise changes / goes away".

It's really tough to get the full range from a video clip... so let's hope it's something simple.

Quick update: Based on prescribed steps offered by Maytag, I had only about 5 minutes to check start-up noise and then depressing of the clutch.

At start-up, I heard three distinct knocks, and it then ended. I ran the car for about 3-4 minutes at idle with no recurrence. No real chance to tell if engaging the clutch would have stopped the noise. More to come over the weekend.
