Disadvantages of the Jaguar AJV6D engine

  • Almost all the problems of this diesel engine are somehow related to lubrication pressure;
  • In the early years, a weak oil pump was installed, which led to the cranking of the liners;
  • Then the pump was changed, but the oil pressure still needs to be closely monitored;
  • Also often here the grease oozes through the heat exchanger and the front crankshaft oil seal;
  • The weak points of the motor include piezo injectors and a plastic intake manifold.
