Disadvantages of the 6G72TT engine

  • This is a very reliable turbine unit and, with proper care, it does not cause trouble;
  • There are a lot of complaints only about the oil burner, and if you miss the oil level, it will turn the liners;
  • Another rare oil change greatly reduces the life of turbines and hydraulic lifters;
  • The main cause of floating speed is the contamination of the throttle and injectors;
  • Keep an eye on the amount of coolant, leaks here happen regularly.
