2013 Ford Ranger rattle

There is a rattle in the engine of my 2013 Ford Ranger. It occurs when cold and hot. When hot it happens at 1500-2000 rpm. When you hear it, it sounds like there's a lack of oil. Ford is saying this is normal. It started at about 15,000 km and has just had its 30,000km service. It's still rattling and Ford is not prepared to investigate. Have contacted CRC with no luck. Can you Help?

It's likely to be a fuelling issue, so check the fuel pump and injectors. Common-rail diesels often have issues with the injectors as they wear. To get a better reading on it I would suggest taking it to an experienced diesel mechanic.
