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.
