Hey, new to the forums!

Just recently bought a 2004 D22 DX Navara 3.0L. Has had a lot of mechanical work done to it and was running A1 until I was driving home yesterday when I noticed the CEL had come on. Diesel was getting low so went and filled it up and made it home. I have cleaned out the fuel filter and that didn't fix it. It has intermittent loss of power and will mostly not rev above 2000-2500 revs as it will become very sputtery and blow large amounts of blue smoke.

Mechanical Work Done:
- New fan belt and tensioner pulley
-New motor mounts
-New turbo
- New centre bearing
- New rear main oil seal
- reco gearbox
- new clutch
- new starter motor
- EGR block and swirl mod
+ a few other things

Any advice on what I can do would be great! Cheers

Edit: Will no longer rev above 1500 RPM, runs extremely rough and blows a large amount of blue smoke.

first thing to do is check for error codes.

blue smoke is typically oil. i would have a quick look at turbo and check how much oil is in the intake.

0406 - Intake air volume VNC system
0104 - Vehicle Speed Sensor
0208 - Cooling Fan Control
0407 - Crankshaft Position Sensor

i would clear the codes, run the ute then re check and see what comes up.

those codes sounds like someones had the engine disconnected eg while working on it, and didn't clear the coses after working on it.

if all those codes do come back up, it sounds more like a bad earth (or one left disconnected) or possible wiring loom issue.

It hadn't been worked on in the time that i've had it and has been driven for approximately 1000km's atleast that I know of since had been worked on. CEL came on mid drive. I posted a video to youtube of me starting and running the ute so you can have a better idea of what it's doing. Found some oil in the intake shown in video and small amount of shaft play.
