Engine Overview and Common Failures

This diesel engine is characterized by a phlegmatic nature, but it has great endurance and resource. In winter, the engine may have difficulty starting due to a faulty temperature sensor. The culprit of power failures and fluctuating RPMs is usually a clogged EGR valve. One of the injectors here is equipped with an injection sensor, which often has a broken coil. The remaining problems with this unit are related to malfunctions in the operation of the Bosch VP37 fuel pump.
