2000 TD5 engine noise?

Unread post by Pinelli » September 18th, 2010, 3:58 pm

Hi all,
I normally lurkaround the Nissan area but went out to look at 2000 TD5 today. A little rough inside but engine and drivetrain looked reasonably clean and dusty ie not steam cleaned. Engine has done 170k but did rattle at idle.
Is this normal? Are these engines normally noisy or should I expect them to be quiet? Never had a diese before so no personal experience there.
Cheers

Hi there , the sound of a TD5 is very differant to the other diesels mate once you own one you can tell them apart from the Nippon style. They do have a little noise but they have tons of guts, I had mine chipped by Bruce Davies performance landys in Sydneys west it increast my power and performance and I get batter fuel econamy as well.
cheers
stay safe
