A big hello to everyone.
I have a 52 plate Discovery 2 TD5, had it for 12 yrs & put 200k miles on it .
Fix it myself with the help of a Nanocom, Rave, Microcat & forum help.
Now the question, Iíve just bought a Portuguese reg 1997 Suzuki Vitara LWB 2.0 TDi.
AFAIK it has the Mazda engine, at least it looks like the one in this ebay ad, : http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/suzuki-vitara-2-0-tur...:AcAAAOSwuAVWy0Z2
I know absolutely nothing about Suzukis, but am willing to learn.
Iíve searched & canít find the answer.
The engine seems to have a bit of a rev related knock on one cylinder, that to me sounds like little end, but Iíve heard it called deisel knock when refering to Suzuki deisels.
What code reader do I need?
Iíd like to understand it a bit more , but am not really concerned as it has, youíre not going to believe this, 2 yrs warranty !
The trader I bought it off speaks a lot better English than my Portuguese, I just donít want my leg lifted by knowing nothing about Suzuki/Mazda deisels.
Any help is much appreciated.

Andy

Hi welcome to the forum bud

Its hard to gauge a knock on a diesel without hearing it at sometimes a fault injector can make them rattle

If it's got warranty then I would suggest getting it back to the garage

Thanks for the reply, Pete.
I got some video of the knock, but don't know how to upload to youtube.
A bit too long in the tooth, I'm afraid.
My son-in-law is in the "trade", so I'll email him with it & see what he says.
Got sorted on the code reader too, he's given me one of his old ones.
