Engine Overview and Common Failures

The weight of the AEL engine according to the catalog is 210 kg. The AEL engine number is located at the junction of the block and the cylinder head. This diesel engine is considered reliable and most of its problems are due to age. The majority of headaches for owners are related to the electronic Bosch VE37 fuel injection pump. Every 100,000 km, an expensive replacement of the timing belt awaits you, and in case of valve failure, the engine head is at risk. The engine head is sensitive to overheating, so pay close attention to the cooling system. After 200,000 km, the turbocharger, EGR valve, and hydraulic lifters often require attention.
