Disadvantages of the TPBA engine

  • The most famous engine problem is the destruction of the exhaust manifold;
  • Debris from the exhaust is drawn into the turbine, which quickly disables it;
  • Also, direct injection nozzles are often dirty here and valves are coked;
  • The wrong choice of oil reduces the life of the phase regulators to 80 – 100 thousand km;
  • Even in these turbo engines, burnout of the pistons due to detonation occurs periodically.
