Engine Overview and Common Failures

This engine is very reliable and the problems described below occur at high mileage. Valve seat burning is quite common, which leads to compression loss. The cause of power loss is usually a stuck turbine geometry and an EGR valve. The lower flange of the VKG pipe often breaks, causing oil to leak into the oil pan. It is very dangerous if the auxiliary belt breaks, as it can get into the timing mechanism.
