Disadvantages of the RTP/RTN/RTQ engine

  • This diesel engine is much more reliable than its predecessors and does not cause many problems;
  • The main thing here is the residual life of the components of the direct injection fuel system;
  • From time to time there are leaks at the junction of the upper and lower parts of the cylinder block;
  • Clogged fuel filter is often the culprit for sudden power failures;
  • When replacing a timing kit, it is important to use the correct replacement parts.
