so a couple of things:
Mileage on the vehicle?
Is the vehicle regularly serviced and at what intervals?
Is the oil level proper?/when last have you had an oil change?
Do you notice any smoke when idling or when the vehicle is making the noise you describe?
Do you hear the noise when the vehicle is under load when cold (like accelerating) or do you hear it when idling?
how long has this been happening/how long have you noticed this for?

It could be injectors; and this just might be a normal diesel trait...but we don't have any info on your van to work with except what was said :wink:

Try using red line for a few fill ups
My van used to be real loud on startup so much so the neighbours asked if it was a tractor.
Since I started using Injector cleaners very very quite

So mileage is 95000K
Vehicle is serviced approx every 5000K
Oil level is at max, oil changed last week
No smoke when idling or when making noise
Noise is heard ESPECIALLY when vehicle is COLD and accelerating, very lightly when idling
Has been happening approx 6 months now.

Tried diesel purge as well as Prestone injector cleaner but no improvement.

You should give the redline 85plus a try or Amsoil Cetane Booster (Not sure if they had a combination product)

It is strange that you should mention a 6 month time frame cause it sounds like just about the time fuel started being imported :)

Really hope you get through cause it starting to sound more like fuel/injectors (not that the injectors are bad but they are being used)

Good day ppl,

Looking at buying a used D40. Can anyone share some insight in terms of maintenance and problems associated with this model? Looking at the 4wd automatic model.

Thanks

By chance u using a diesel treatment? If so, what brand? I've personally experienced a particular brand does cause boost sensor error code to show up.

No treatment but solved the issue, the sensor needed some cleaning, it works fine after some contact cleaner spraying.

When opening the coolant reservoir first and then the actual radiator is it normal to see inside by the radiator completely dry, the fins inside and all with the car cool . Is it possible that the hose from the overflow bottle ever blocks ?

Your radiator and cooling system should be purged of air.
