Disadvantages of the Land Rover 10P TD5 engine

  • The main problems are connected with breaks in the electrical wiring under the valve cover;
  • 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.
