I often get a slight knocking noise from engine when first started up on cold morning at 1500rpm...this noise goes away once running for two minutes or so..Could this just be the autochoke unit causing the diesel engiine to run slightly rich and thus causing noise? Has anybody else got this noise?

Seems pretty normal for a diesel. I have the CRD which seems a bit quieter than most diesels, but as you say, for the first few minutes from cold it's definitely noisy.
