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.
