Knocking engine, warning lights, juddering start...AFTER a new driveshaft!

Car's going back to the garage again, it went in for some warranty work, a new driveshaft and clutch (long story), and since I've got it back it's sounding very poorly.

When I tap the gas pedal, as well as the rise in revs there is also a loud thump from the engine, sounds like my old fiesta did with a broken engine mount. However, when you open the bonnet, this noise sounds more like air escaping.

It makes the same noise out of gear going over rough ground, and yesterday the service light and ABS light came on.

Getting well fed up now, why can't the garage just fix it properly?
