Holden Jackaroo 2000: What's causing the engine to rattle and blow smoke?
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.
It could be a blown head gasket as your mechanic suggests, but he should be able to test it to determine if it is blown or not. You should also be able to see evidence in the form of a milky substance in the coolant if it is a blown head gasket.
Turbo-diesel difficult to start
I would suggest you seek out a diesel specialist to work on your car. It is valued at about $8000 at best on the used car market, and that's when it's running well, so that should give you an idea of what to spend on it.
Holden Jackaroo cooler
I wouldn't reconnect it. If the aftermarket cooler is designed to operate as a stand-alone one, and it's doing the job, then I would leave well enough alone.
