There are four tribes in an island.

The Pukkas who always tell the truth;
The Wotta-Woppas who never tell the truth;
The Shilli-Shallas who make statements which are alternatively true & false or false & true and
The Jokers whose rules when three statements are made are any rules that are different from any of the other three tribes.

This puzzle is with four men A, B, C and D one from each tribe. B, C and D speak as follows:

B:
1. I am a Joker
2. C sometimes tells the truth
3. D is a Pukka

C:
1. A is a Pukka

D:
1. B is a Joker

Although A is missing in making statements, you should be able to find the tribes to which these four men belong with good logical reasoning.

One evening you are sitting in a room with no windows and the door shut. Suddenly you hear two cars drive up outside. From the noise of the engines you can make out that one car's engine is well tuned, whereas the other car's engine is in urgent need of repair. The engines are switched off and you are asked to go out and identify the car with the good engine. You are allowed to start only one engine to hear the noise. However, when you get outside, you find 3 cars. You are told that one of them was already there for a long time.
How can you be sure to find the car with the good engine?
