Disadvantages of the BHDA/BHDB engine

  • This diesel engine is demanding on fuel, but with good quality it runs without problems;
  • Poor-quality diesel fuel quickly affects the condition of the nozzles, as well as the high-pressure fuel pump;
  • A dirty fuel filter can cause sudden power failures;
  • The junction of the upper and lower parts of the cylinder block is often a source of leaks;
  • After a run of 150 – 200 thousand km, an expensive turbine is at risk.
