Disadvantages of the Audi AAS engine
- This is a very reliable and durable diesel engine without a turbine and with a mechanical injection pump;
- The only weak point of the motor is the cylinder head prone to cracking;
- You also need to monitor the condition of the timing belt, since when it breaks, the valves bend;
- After 200,000 km, lubricant consumption is common, up to a liter per 1000 km;
- Even on long runs, the high-pressure fuel pump often leaks here due to the wear of its gaskets.
