Hi guys, your help would be appreciated in some problems we are experiencing. We have a 2009 Mito 1.3 Diesel Veloce. We are getting. Knocking noise from within the engine that only really appears when the engine is being driven and therefore under load. It sounds metallic and towards the top of the engine rather than say a big end noise. We have been running on decent fuel to rule out 'diesel knock'. We plan on taking to our AR specialist for his advice but wanted a heads up first. Any point us to possible causes?? Timing chain, tensioner, turbo, little ends???

We are also now getting smoke from the exhaust both whilst driving and in tickover on the drive. The exhaust gases smell really strong also. Fuel economy is around 47 mpg that's motorway driving at 70mph with very little town driving.

Thanks in advance.
