Disadvantages of the 6A12TT engine

  • Very dense layout of the engine compartment makes maintenance difficult;
  • For a relatively short time, hydraulic lifters and an idle speed controller serve here;
  • The timing belt can burst the previously set 90,000 km and the valves will bend 100%;
  • Turbines do not cause problems, sometimes the pressure relief valve stem turns sour;
  • Keep an eye on the oil level, when the pressure drops, it often turns the liners.
