  • The timing chain and especially the hydraulic tensioner are distinguished by a not very high resource here;
  • Difficult starting is often encountered due to freezing of crankcase ventilation or control unit;
  • The network complains about the ingress of fuel into the oil during the burning of the particulate filter;
  • Weaknesses include a turbine geometry change system, a mass air flow sensor and an EGR valve.
