Disadvantages of the G8DA/G8DB engine
- The first batches of engines suffered from camshaft cam wear and chain stretching.
- This diesel cokes very quickly, try to change the oil as often as possible.
- Accelerated coking contributes to the burnout of the sealing washers under the nozzles.
- The filter in the oil feed pipe is often clogged, which leads to turbine failure.
- Antifreeze leaks often occur, and engine hydraulic mounts also have a small resource.
