    did you try to contact Isuzu Motors on the net.? But then they will give new a brand new engine and i don't know if they still have that in stock. But it would cost highly to place an order. If it was the philippines that would be easy but only 4 cylinder turbo here, 6 cylinder is gasoline v type.

I think its much cheaper to overhaul the engine rather than replace it with anew one which is very expensive. The new engine may cost you around RM25K+ where is the cost of the overhaul might cost u around RM4K.Make sure the mechanic is professional enough to do the job.

The vin # does not get higher as the year goes up, the vin # each number has a meaning to it, for example body code is one number then year then engine type and so on, it does not start at 1 and go up as the years do, hope this explains it good day
