Could be from faulty injectors tips. timing out, gudgeon pin bush wear, and bearing failure. Start with the injector timing and injectors as that is the cheapest way .

Hi there I am thinking about replacing my 2001 3lt diesel trooper motor with a 87 3.3lt isuzu diesel motor what changer would need doing can I use the 3lt gearbox and the 3.1lt gearbox and engine mounts

The main problem that you will encounter is the mounting of the engine. You might end up having to customize the mounting brackets and reorder some components of the engine compartment in order for the replacement engine to mount correctly. You would have to balance the engine as well and pair up it's output with the capacity of the differentials. I think you can use the present gearbox but results are not guaranteed and it's not an easy fix.

98 Ford Explorer engine/exhaust noise

When catalytic converters go bad, the porcelain matrix inside comes loose and is noisy.
But you can just unbolt it, break up the loose chunks, pour out the pieces, and it will run better than ever.
If you don't pass the next emissions test, then replace it.

But it could just be the heat shield rattling instead.
Take the shield off first, to see if it goes away.

Loud rattling / buzzing noise from engine when cold not seconday air pump or air valve as already replaced.Timing belt,water pump and aux pullies all checked and ok.The colder the weather the louder the...

If the rattling changes with the revs of the engine, it might be that the valve compensators are either worn or not getting enough lubrication. 20V engines have quite small oil passages travelling to the head. They tend to clog up with gunk if the oil change is not frequent enough.
