Disadvantages of the D3FA engine
- The Bosch VP30 high pressure fuel pump does not like impurities in the fuel and over time begins to drive chips;
- As soon as the contamination reaches the injectors, constant dips in traction appear;
- Relatively rapid wear here is subject to the beds of camshafts;
- On runs of 100 – 150 thousand km, the timing chain mechanism may require attention;
- Loud knocking under the hood usually means that the upper connecting rod bushings have broken.
