Disadvantages of the Audi DETA engine
- At this point, the only weak point of the engine is the short-lived flywheel;
- Saving on diesel fuel often leads to expensive repairs of fuel equipment;
- As with many modern diesel engines, the EGR valve quickly clogs with soot;
- The water pump here may fail before the scheduled replacement of the timing belt;
- Pour oils with VW 507.00 or 509.00 approvals, otherwise the particulate filter will not last long.
