Disadvantages of the Hyundai D6EA engine
- A known weak point of this diesel is the glow plug control unit;
- The fuel system is reliable, but piezo injectors are demanding on fuel quality;
- The cause of the oil burner is usually a malfunction of the crankcase ventilation valve;
- Double-row timing chain stretches closer to 200,000 km and can immediately jump;
- A lot of trouble is caused by contamination of the intake and sensors due to the operation of the EGR valve.
