Disadvantages of the D6BA engine
- Servicemen consider this engine not very reliable, but quite maintainable;
- The Bosch VP-44 fuel pump is afraid of impurities in diesel fuel and often drives chips;
- Its wear products quickly clog the nozzles, leading to frequent thrust failures;
- A powerful double-row timing chain actually stretches for 100 – 150 thousand kilometers;
- By 200 thousand km, the head breaks in the connecting rods and a characteristic knock of the engine appears.
