Disadvantages of the Mazda RF7J engine
- Most of the problems are caused by burnouts of the sealing washers under the nozzles.
- Often the return flow of the nozzles also flows, which leads to the mixing of the lubricant with the fuel.
- The main source of oil leaks are cracks in the intercooler flanges.
- During the burning of the particulate filter, diesel fuel can also enter the oil here.
- Other weaknesses in the engine include: SCV valve in the high pressure fuel pump, vacuum pump and mass air flow sensor.
