Disadvantages of the QYWA engine

  • The main problems for the owners are delivered by the capricious Common Rail Delphi system;
  • Poor-quality diesel fuel or simple airing quickly disables it;
  • Overhaul of fuel equipment is associated with the removal of the high pressure fuel pump, injectors and even the tank;
  • Difficulty starting the engine with a blow indicates the destruction of the damper of the crankshaft pulley;
  • Often, the camshaft position sensor is buggy and the adaptation of the injectors is lost.
