  1. HI STEVE,THANKS FOR REPLYING.THE PREVIOUS POSTS ARE A LITTLE CONFUSING.VARIOUS DEGREES OF NOISEY ENGINES.IT SEEMS THEY DO HAVE A NOISE PROBLEM.MY TRUCK HAS ONLY DONE 23K SO I THINK VALVE CLEARANCES SHOULD BE OK.THE LEVEL OF NOISE IS SUCH THAT IT SOUNDS AS IF A BIG END IS KNOCKING UNTILL IT WARMS UP. I WILL BE VERY DISAPOINTED IF THIS IS A USUAL FAULT THAT TOYOTA CANNOT CURE.HIGHER CETANE FUEL AND NEW INJECTORS MADE NO DIFFERENCE.IF THIS IS A COMMON FAULT WHY WAS THE VEHICLE TOTALLY QUIET WHEN NEW? THANKS FOR YOUR HELP.GORDON.
  2. HI, CAN ANYONE HELP? I HAVE A 2007 HILUX INVICIBLE.WHEN THE ENGINE IS COLD OR UNDER LIGHT LOAD CONDITIONS,THERE IS A KNOCKING SOUND FROM THE ENGINE.IF IT WERE A PETROL YOU WOULD SAY IT WAS PINKING.THE DEALER HAS PUT IN NEW INJECTORS BUT STILL THE PROBLEM EXSISTS.THEY HAVE NOW TOLD ME TO USE A HIGHER CETANE FUEL TO SEE IF THIS HELPS.BUT SURELY I SHOULD BEABLE TO FILL UP WITH NORMAL DERV.HAS ANYONE OUT THERE HAD SIMILAR PROBLEMS?HEEEEELP.!!!!!! THANKS GORDON.
