  • Ford Kuga Mk1 in 2010 – 2012.

Disadvantages of the TXDA engine

  • Modern fuel equipment with piezo injectors does not tolerate bad fuel;
  • Delphi injectors quickly become unusable and cannot be repaired in any way;
  • If a bunch of errors appear, it is worth inspecting the wiring harness, it is often frayed;
  • Hydraulic lifters prefer the original oil, otherwise they can knock to 100,000 km;
  • As with any new diesel, here you need to clean the EGR and burn through the particulate filter.
