Hi

I recently purchased a ford courier 2.5 diesel turbo and it has a quiet rattle/bearing noise when its under load between 1500-1900rpm, it doesn't seem to do it all time. If anyone has any ideas on what it could be it would be appreciated

thanks

2wd, at first i thought it was pre-iginiton/detonation but since listening to it more it sounds more like a bearing of some sort

Is it in every gear under load? does it make a difference if you put the clutch in??

Ok put the handbrake on and chock the rear wheels and try to drive off put the engine under load(without frying the clutch ) if no rattle i would say front gearbox/ input shaft bearing maybe? Have you checked the gear oil level?

Keep the revs up above 2000 rpm, turbo diesels don't like being lugged down low. The WLT engine doesn't have much low end torque, but they like to rev and tend drive a bit like a petrol engine.
