Disadvantages of the EXF engine

  • Most diesel problems are related to malfunctions in its fuel system;
  • Even before 100,000 km, the high pressure fuel pump may fail or the injectors may start to pour;
  • Often there is oil starvation due to the sinking of the heat exchanger valve;
  • The turbocharger here is quite reliable, but its nozzles burst regularly;
  • Often the thermostat and the damper actuator for changing the geometry of the intake fail.
