Disadvantages of the TD27ETi engine
- All the most common breakdowns of this diesel engine are somehow connected with the high pressure fuel pump;
- With floating engine speeds and thrust failures, cleaning the positioner usually helps;
- Also, periodically cleaning of all meshes and filters of the fuel system is required;
- Many problems are caused by glitches in the crankshaft position sensor and air flow;
- Another weak point is the corrugation from the air filter to the turbine.
