Disadvantages of the UGJC engine

  • The motor is very afraid of low temperatures and during operation in the winter can throw problems;
  • The EGR valve is overgrown with soot over 30-50 thousand kilometers and then traction drops noticeably;
  • Closer to 100,000 km, there is a high risk that the diesel particulate filter will become clogged and require replacement;
  • On runs over 100,000 km, expensive repairs of fuel equipment begin.
