Disadvantages of the Land Rover 306PN engine
- This engine is very reliable and its main disadvantage is its high fuel consumption;
- Often a whistle is heard under the hood due to a burst crankcase ventilation membrane;
- A low resource here is distinguished by a block of a water pump and power steering on the same shaft;
- Another weak point is the overrunning clutch of the drive of auxiliary units;
- The problem with wear of gears and bearings of the timing gearbox is also found here.
