Disadvantages of the JXFA engine
- The main problems of the motor are associated with contamination of the Common Rail fuel system;
- Due to impurities in diesel fuel, the shaft of the high-pressure fuel pump wears out, and then the chips clog the nozzles;
- On runs of more than 150 thousand km, the timing chain mechanism often already requires attention;
- The upper heads of the connecting rods break after 200,000 km and knocks appear under the hood;
- Auxiliary equipment usually fails the generator and vacuum pump.
