Disadvantages of the KKDA/KKDB engine

  • Delphi’s fuel-hungry Common Rail system will give you the most trouble;
  • Violation of the filter replacement interval turns into a costly repair;
  • Repair of fuel equipment is associated with the dismantling of the high pressure fuel pump, injectors and even the tank;
  • After 100 thousand km, nozzles often begin to pour, which leads to burnout of the pistons;
  • Often the crankshaft pulley damper and camshaft position sensor are changed here.
