Engine Overview and Common Failures

The weight of the BUG engine according to the catalog is 220 kg. The BUG engine number is located at the front, at the junction of the block and the cylinder head. Up to 100,000 km, the only thing that can cause concern in the engine are the intake manifold flaps. Around this mileage, the injection pump belt often breaks, but usually without consequences. In the early years of production, piston burnout due to defective piezo injectors was encountered. The timing chain lasts a long time, up to 300-350 thousand km, but its replacement is very expensive. On high mileage, the diesel particulate filter or the EGR valve can become completely clogged.
