Hi again. Quick update apparently the truck came fitted with blank egr from previous owner. Now the big stuff I decided to take the truck for a long run and take the familly our for the day but instead after driven 8miles I have broke down the tapping noise was getting louder and eventually there was now power to move the truck. And there is a bit of oil drip on the floor and now there is white smoke come when you crank it but still undrivable till this point. Am so lost now.
Regards

Hi thanks for getting back to me. No is definitely oil not diesel I didnt have oil leak before and since this happened there is oil leak but not sure where from and not sure Ither if is fuel related. The truck came with new top end, new turbo and new radiator! I think I might have towed it to a Independent nissan specialist... if I knew this would happen I would of never both navara and this I my first truck that I ever owned I guess we do learn the hard way...

People often sell vehicles because they have a problem with it, sounds like you have bought one like that.

I would guess if the truck came with a new head and radiator that it had probably overheated due to physical damage to the radiator.

My guess is the head gasket has failed.

Surely when they fitted new head they must of installed new gasket and new radiator?! But question is why did it fail again as the truck never overheated?
