Engine Overview and Common Failures

The weight of the ZD30DD engine according to the catalog is 210 kg. The engine number ZD30DD is located at the junction of the block and the cylinder head. The most common problems are with the fuel system, specifically the failure of injectors and fuel pump. In second place, there is a risk of gasket leakage or cracking of the cylinder head due to overheating. The auxiliary belt tensioner rarely lasts more than 60,000 km. The weak point in the engine's electrical system is the air mass flow sensor. Due to temperature variations, the mounting surface of the exhaust manifold may warp.
