- In second place is the rapid wear of the cams and rockers of the pump-injector drive;
- Due to the destruction of the sealing rings of the injectors, the fuel is mixed with oil;
- Often the axis of the turbine bypass damper wedges and its control valve fails;
- Also, cracking of the cylinder head and crankshaft damper pulley is often found here.
