Disadvantages of the Mini W16D16 engine
- The first years of production in these diesel engines quickly wore out the camshaft cams;
- Timing phases also often go astray due to stretching of the chain between the camshafts;
- A clogged coarse oil filter greatly reduces the life of the turbine;
- The cause of carbon formation is the burnout of refractory washers under the nozzles;
- The remaining problems are associated with contamination of the particulate filter and the EGR valve.
