Engine Overview and Common Failures

This engine has not been in production for so long and the statistics of breakdowns have not been formed yet. The use of new cast iron sleeves has virtually eliminated the problem of scuffing. However, catalytic converters still deteriorate quickly due to poor quality fuel. The main cause of severe timing chain cracking is often wear of hydraulic tensioners. In our operating conditions, the temperamental fuel injection pump often fails.
