Disadvantages of the YD22DDTi engine

  • Denso fuel system reliability is good, but repair costs are high;
  • On the profile forum, owners often complain about oil leaks from the intercooler;
  • Fragile glow plugs break off when replaced and are very difficult to get to;
  • Periodically, you have to clean the EGR valve, here it quickly overgrows with soot;
  • After 200,000 km, there is a high risk of stretching the double-row timing chain of the engine.
