Features of OM 647
OM647 uses five cylinders. The engine is operated with a VGT or VNT turbocharger. The boost pressure is up to 1600 bar. There are 2 camshafts on the motor, the drive is carried out using a timing chain. There are 4 valves per cylinder, adjustable by pushers. There is an electronically controlled EGR valve. The control unit also controls the fuel pump, and the fuel is supplied metered.
Pre-injection, which means that a small portion of the fuel is burned before the main process. This makes it possible to heat the chamber, which contributes to a quick start and warm-up of the motor. Of course, the temperature regime and the pressure parameter are better maintained. Some modifications of these engines are equipped with a balance shaft rotating opposite the crankshaft at a higher speed.
Typical faults and modifications
- the fuel system fails frequently;
- crankshaft bearings rotate;
- particulate filters are deteriorating;
- Intake manifold flaps wear out prematurely.
OM647 has two modifications: 961 with 163 hp. at 4200 rpm and 981 with 156 hp. at 4200 rpm.
