White smoke is unburnt fuel, so going on the history of those engines, and the mileage of your vehicle, I'd say it may have burnt out a piston crown.

Actually there wouldn't be too many ZD30's that have done that mileage....... Nissan might give you a new one! TIC

Don't ask for opinion on a forum. Have a qualified diesel mechanic look at it.

James is right .
You will get a lot of well meaning advise and some will be good but with the history of these motors a visit to a good mechanic would be the go .

Good luck

Cheers

Advice: Go to mechanic. 400,000+ k's - motor needs rebuild - it's pretty much worn out by this stage.

At 435,000 plus kms, your engine is going to need more than a $500 fix. Try a new engine.
What kind of life do you think a 3 litre diesel in a 4WD has? It's worn out, it probably has at least a broken ring, it could have a blown piston, it could be a blown head gasket - and it could be a raft of problems, that are all associated with 10 yrs of hard life and lots of distance covered.
Little wonder the mechanics can't agree - at that stage of its life, the problems would be multiple, and all related to severe and extensive wear.

Cheers, Ron.
