I had an early 99 truck that was sounding more like a diesel truck than it really should have. It *was* a diesel truck, but it started sounding waaay too diesel-y. And it started to smell like unburned diesel out of the exhaust. It got more and more clackity till it was only running on about half it's cylinders and smoking really badly.
A mechanic friend of mine tore it down and found bad cam bearings. Darned things.. They only lasted 300K miles??
Anyway, he traded me the truck for an ambulance. He put new bearings in it, and it's running strong again..
