Hi, I have a 94 Pajero Nj 2.8TD with a 4M40 engine, and when the engine is revving over 2000, be it in gear or out of gear, there is a tap tap scraping noise which increases in speed with the engine. I...

check if it has a timing chain as it indicates that the chain is hitting on the timing cover ( replace it and the guides if it has) If the front of the engine is all metal then it will be a chain
It could be faulty injectors squirting and not atomizing but that noise is a knock and generally go with higher revs

Eninge knock with a known cam gear problems.

i had the same problem. had a knocking on the engine and let the vehicle sit until i had time to look for the problem. my unknowing mom took the car without permission and the car broke down on her. as it would turn out the upper timing guide rail broke off and damaged the cam gears and broke the upper timing chain along with damaging both the right and left lower chain guides, and the tensioner was also damaged. i would recommend that u inspect the lower chain to make sure that everything is good.

1995 jaguar xjs will not crank

Hi! You say you put gas in the intake? does it try to fire? if not when turning the engine over is the cam revolving? i.e. are all valves opening and closing if NOT then you have a rather large problem. Cam chain/belt broken or maybe Cam snapped?
Sorry to bear bad tidings if this is the problem? if not the cam try Ecu (Brain) as if this goes ponto then you'll never get the darn thing started.
Good luck!
