Engine Overview and Common Failures

Firstly, this engine is quite weak and takes almost 25 seconds to accelerate to one hundred kilometers per hour. However, in terms of reliability, it is not bad as breakdowns only occur at significant mileage. Due to the pump-injector attachment with a single bolt, they can become loose and cause leaks. The use of cheap oil contributes to rapid wear of the camshaft and hydraulic lifters. The turbocharger and tandem pump are also considered weak points of this engine.
