Disadvantages of the C9DA/C9DB/C9DC engine
- This diesel engine is not like its predecessors and, with good fuel quality, runs for a long time;
- Low-quality diesel fuel quickly affects the performance of high-pressure fuel pumps and injectors;
- The cause of sudden traction failures is usually a severely clogged fuel filter;
- Lubrication leaks often form at the junction of the upper and lower parts of the cylinder block;
- If the engine is unstable, it is worth inspecting the corrugations of the intercooler air duct.
