Disadvantages of the SH-VPTS engine

  • This diesel engine is considered very problematic due to the unreliable fastening of the injectors.
  • Over time, they become loose, which leads to coking of the oil channels.
  • Prolonged oil starvation often results in engine failure.
  • At any run, the vacuum pump can fall apart, which is fatal for the unit.
