Those are both odd issues...lol
The not starting and loud clank is enough to make me take it in or look at it.
-Battery CCA rating?
Outside of that I can't think of what it would be.
The shutting off before warm is odd too. I have got on my a few moments after I start it, it idles high to "warm up" but if you go into gear and clutch out slow the RPM drops because the friction of course. So it dying...running lean?
Some think higher RPM to warm up is proper. Other argue, why sit there and high idle when you let it "warm up" so the oil can circulate.
Good luck guys

Could it just be the engine noise until the oil gets topside ?
What weight oil are you using?
