Disadvantages of the Land Rover 15P TD5 engine
- Most of the problems are caused by breaks in the wiring under the valve cover;
- Also, the cams and rocker of the pump-injector drive wear out pretty quickly here;
- Fuel can enter the oil due to broken injector o-rings;
- Often the turbine control valve fails and the wastegate axis jams;
- Cracking of the cylinder head and crankshaft damper pulley is also regularly encountered.
