I think i have found the problem . The rubber pipe on the inlet of the Turbo runs down to a steel pipe that is bolted to the front of the truck next to the rad. One of the bolts is broken this allows it to move and knock on the chassis

best way is to have someone wobble the wheel with the engine running and you get under and find which bit is moving the most,

First thing i do on any car i buy with no poor or no dealer history is grease everything, and replace all the oils and filters.

I check the brake fluid too to see what it looks like, if it looks grotty, that gets changed too.

as for belts, for auxiliary belts unless the look perished I will leave them until the look like they needed changing. For mains, I look at how much life they are expected to have, if they are 75% of their lifespan then i'll change them too.

I tend to spread this over about 6 months, doing the oil, greasing and filters within the first couple of weeks of getting the car, then moving onto coolant belts and brake fluid if needed and then finally belts (unless they look really bad then they get done earlier). Just keeps you from having a massive bill at once.

Just my method though, I would rather know its all done and then I can set up a proper schedule especially if i plan to keep the car for a while.

Had my 2013 truck 6 months / 5k miles so started to think about service items. Its on 52k miles, last seviced at 47k, but the last main dealer service was at 27k. The last 2 were at an unknown indie garage so i cant be sure the full schedule was done

I've changed the ATF because it was black and cooked, but was wondering what other bits would be worth doing? Was thinking diff oil and maybe grease the universal joints? Dont think its due a belt yet?

What would you do for a truck with unknown history?

Also, Steering Idler, which is the pivot point on the opposite side of the vehicle to the steering box.
