Disadvantages of the FFDA engine

  • The Common Rail Delphi system does not like low-quality diesel fuel and you will have the main problems with it;
  • The filter replacement interval must be strictly observed or it will not last long;
  • Repair of the fuel system usually involves the dismantling of the high pressure fuel pump, injectors and tank;
  • A modest resource has a camshaft position sensor and a crankshaft pulley damper;
  • On shoots over 100,000 km, nozzles are often already poured, which is fraught with burnout of the pistons.
