Disadvantages of the FXFA engine
- Even from a small amount of impurities in the fuel, the VP44 high pressure fuel pump drives chips;
- Dirt from the pump scatters throughout the system and, first of all, clogs all nozzles;
- The camshaft beds are also subject to fairly rapid wear;
- The two-row chain only looks massive, but in fact it stretches to 150,000 km;
- The weak point of the cylinder-piston group of the engine is the upper connecting rod bushing.
