Engine Overview and Common Failures

The weight of the CRCA engine according to the catalog is 195 kg. The CRCA engine number is located at the front, at the junction of the block with the cylinder head. The engines of this series have proven to be more reliable than their predecessors, and there have been few complaints about them so far. The main engine breakdowns are related to the fuel system and its piezo injectors. Oil or coolant leaks are also occasionally discussed on forums. With a mileage of over 200,000 km, the timing chain often wears out and requires replacement. Like all modern diesel engines, the particulate filter and EGR system cause a lot of problems.
