    Hi Lou & Stan, Nissan patrol diesel 2.8L owners

    Hi,
    My name is Louise, my hubby is Stan, we live near Grafton, NSW. A few years ago we bought a lovely nissan patrol 2.8L diesel , and have done it up so it is pretty good. Now we have an undiagnosed problem with it. It is making a loud tapping sound which goes faster with higher rev's. Oil pressure is fine, but is now blowing white smoke. Three mechanics are saying they don't know what the problem is, so they tell us we should get a new engine!! It has 245,000 km's on it and has been kept in good shape. Can anyone give us some advice? We need some guidance, as we are not overly mechanical ( I am a science teacher, hubby is a horticulturalist). Cheers, Lou

    Best to intro yourself first ,you'll find you'll get a better response, Just something the forum asks of everyone, we get to know abit about you and vice versa.

    Welcome mate, surely the best forum on the net. If you need it, you can get it, if you want to know it, just ask it.

    Welcome to the forum mate, feel free to ask any questions and join in the conversations.

    I would ask this question in another section Lou as a lot of people won't read the introductions section.

    Start a new thread under a different section and a lot more people will see it...Good luck!
