      Did an OBD1 to OBD2 28-pin circular connector interchange listing result from this? I guess it could be done in one of two ways: A) reconfigure 28-pin connector on body/ECU harness side to match...

      The knocking might well be the cam wearing at one or more of the PD injector lobes. This is a very common failure, especially if running a 30W rather than 40W engine oil (due to the PD injector...
