Also, why on earth are you changing your oil at 5000km? Most diesels here have service intervals of 10,000km.

Toyota recommend 5000km if used in heavy traffic or on fast long runs. 10.K under normal ??? conditions. Well if anyone bothers to look it's in their manual TA

Any mechanic with a lift would be able to diagnose this. Using the lift to unload the suspension and shake stuff around to see what’s loose/worn out/knocking.

For the disbelievers. Page 486 of the Toyota service manual. Some of the relevant KM are there.

Figures shown are for heavy traffic, high speed runs, large loads, Dusty roads +++

You use synthetic oil in your 2.8, and change it every 5000km.....🤭

Very funny 🤣  it's 15 years old,  things all over a car/truck get noisy over time doesn't mean somethings worn out just getting to be that way.

Is there any vibration felt in the ride when on the street....?

If we are talking actual engine knock, don't dismiss a faulty injector....

No, only in idle and when backing (reverse gear).  I don't feel any abnormal vibration as the rev goes up.

The collective knowledge says "check anything that has rubber", UJ, centre bearing, engine mounts.

No shop ever said that to me and I thought 10,000km is for synthetic oil only, diesel or petrol.  I'll ask Toyota.

My old 3.0 Vigo used semi syn from factory, 10kkm oil change..

All this change at 5kkm because of dust or engine has worked hard, is for those who go up and down sand dunes in the desert, off roading using low gears, not speed bumps in Tesco's...🤭

Here's something by way of contrast, which kind of puts the 5,000km (3,100 miles) oil changes into perspective. See 2nd paragraph.

 

https://www.mercedes-benz-trucks.com oil change intervals

 

 

They do Condition Monitoring.  However his vehicle is 15 years old. Opinions and oils have changed since then. I would add that if you haven't been using synthetic oil...DON'T change to it now unless you want oil leaks .
