Engine Overview and Common Failures

The weight of the ABL engine assembly is 155 kg. The engine number for the ABL is located on the cylinder block. This power unit is prone to overheating, with the aluminum cylinder head quickly developing cracks. Another well-known issue with this diesel engine is fuel leakage through the injection pump gasket. The timing belt is designed to last for 60,000 km, but if you miss the replacement, it can result in valve damage. On long distances, the turbocharger often requires attention as it tends to push out lubrication. The main drawback of these engines is their age and consequent wear.
