Engine Hyundai D6BR

The Hyundai D6BR is a six-cylinder in-line diesel engine manufactured by the Hyundai Motor Company. Turbocharging is available in almost all D6BR engine variants, with the exception of some models used on short trucks and small buses.

By the way, only Hyundai models – HD120 trucks and Aero Town buses – are still equipped with these internal combustion engines. The use of the D6BR began in the early 00s of this century and continues to this day. Naturally, the motors are periodically amenable to modernization.

D6BR is one of the most traction engines made in South Korea. First of all, it should be noted the highest volumes of this unit – almost 7,600 cubic centimeters, which holds almost 12-14 liters of lubricant. The D6BR engines run on diesel fuel, providing excellent low-end traction. On average, these ICEs consume about 22-25 liters of fuel per 100 kilometers at a speed of 60-70 kilometers per hour.

D6BR engine maintenance

As you can see from the table, D6BR motors have a millionth resource. This state of affairs is quite real, and not drawn on paper. However, to achieve such a high efficiency from the engines under consideration, it is extremely important:

  1. fill them with exceptionally high-quality raw materials (from antifreeze and oil to fuel);
  2. do not overload with work under heavy load conditions;
  3. adhere to the manufacturer’s basic recommendations for ICE maintenance, which are reflected in the corresponding manuals and manuals.
