Holden Jackaroo 2000: What's causing the engine to rattle and blow smoke?

Asked by Andrew

My 2000 Holden Jackaroo turbo-diesel has a rattle in engine and blows thick smoke. It has not been driven for about six months.

It could be a problem with the diesel pump, it might be a problem with the turbocharger, or it could even be an internal problem with the engine itself. Get it to a diesel mechanic for a proper diagnosis.
