Disadvantages of the Land Rover 256T engine
- This diesel engine is very afraid of overheating and the cylinder head cracks here quite often;
- Closer to 150,000 km, the valve timing may go astray due to chain stretching;
- At about the same mileage, cracks often appear in the hot part of the turbine;
- Saving on oil here turns into rapid wear of the injection pump plunger pair;
- Difficult cold start usually hints at booster pump failure.
