Disadvantages of the N47D20 engine

  • The most famous problem of the motor in stretching the timing chain on runs up to 100,000 km;
  • Replacing the timing kit is done only with the removal of the engine and is not cheap;
  • Swirl flaps in the intake manifold quickly overgrow with soot and jam;
  • The crankshaft damper has a modest resource and may require replacement by 100,000 km;
  • Prolonged overheating of a diesel engine often leads to cracks between the cylinders.
