Disadvantages of the Audi CCWA engine

  • Most motor problems are due to the vagaries of the CR system with piezo injectors;
  • The recall campaign for the free replacement of defective high-pressure fuel pumps concerned these diesel engines;
  • Even at low runs, swirl flaps in the intake manifold often wedge;
  • Timing chains often stretch to 300,000 km, replacing them will be expensive;
  • A lot of trouble can deliver a particulate filter and EGR, many simply remove them.
