My van has a 1.9td abl engine 1997 reg - done nearly 185k

I noticed today that I had a little oil leak - the turbo oil pipe that comes from the oil cooler. It was leaking at the oil cooler end. It wouldn't tighten up any more so I loosened it off and cleaned it and put it back on.

I topped it up and started it up - on tick over there is now a noticeable knocking noise (it's not loud but louder than a tapping - if that makes sence). If you increase the revs it seems to go
Is it time.........!!!
