Hello all, its been a while since ive been on, much has changed, i got rid of the warrior having got sick of the never ending repair bill and with the truck still not running right at the end, ive been out and replaced it with a 2005 Ford Ranger Thunder which i actually prefer however it has started knocking, i have been told that they are a mitsubishi engine?? i have also been told its the big ends as its a common problem, it has a mitsubishi alternator and powersteering pump however i cant find anything on the block or head, i wondered if anbody knew if this was right?? also if anybody knew what a common mitsubishi knocking problem was as that was about the only thing my warrior didnt do wrong!!!!!! thanks in advance!!!!!!

It's a MAZDA engine !! Check your glow plugs as they have a habit of loosing there tips which embed in the pistons normally due to glow plug relay sticking on. Personally i prefer my other halfs Ford Ranger to my L200

I had a knocking engine on my Warrior, the mechanic thought it might be diesel knock caused by a dodgy injector,anyway to cut a long story short it turned out to be a broken crankshaft main bearing cap bolt, the crankshaft was destroyed and now i have a new engine.

I had a knocking noise coming from the engine the other week. Thought the worst Cry, big end failure, cam shaft failure or something else along them lines. Turned out to be the balance belt had snapped and the crank shaft had jumped one tooth. Replaced the belt, reset the timing and all was well Grin. So new belts, pulley, tensioners and a few other bits ordered, now just waiting for postman pat to deliver all my stuff. So I would take the cam belt top cover off and have a look first.
