Engine Peugeot DV6ATED4

The 1.6-liter Peugeot DV6ATED4 or DV6A or 1.6 HDi 90 engine was assembled from 2004 to 2011 and installed on most of the most popular models of the French concern of its time. This power unit existed in two versions: 9HV with a particulate filter and 9HX without it.

Other diesels of the DV6 family: DV6TED4, DV6ATED4, DV6BTED4, DV6CTED, DV6DTED, DV6ETED, DV6FCTED, DV6FDTED, DV6FETED.

In 2004, along with the 109 hp DV6 diesel engine, a simplified version of the DV6A with 90 hp appeared. The design of both engines is similar: an aluminum 4-cylinder block with cast-iron liners, an aluminum 16-valve cylinder head with hydraulic lifters, and a combined timing drive, where the crankshaft is connected to the exhaust camshaft by a belt, and the intake and exhaust shafts are connected by a chain.

The Bosch Common Rail system with electromagnetic injectors is responsible for fuel injection, and all modifications are equipped with a conventional Mitsubishi TD025 turbine without variable geometry. There are two versions of the engine: 9HV for Euro 4 with a particulate filter, 9HX for Euro 3 without it.

The engine was installed on:

  • Citroen C3 I (A31) in 2005 – 2009; C3 II (A51) in 2009 – 2011;
  • Citroen C3 Picasso I (A58) in 2009 – 2011;
  • Citroen C4 I (B51) in 2004 – 2010;
  • Citroen Berlingo I (M49/M59) in 2005 – 2008; Berlingo II (B9) in 2008 – 2010;
  • Citroen Xsara Picasso I (N68) in 2006 – 2010;
  • Peugeot 207 I (A7) in 2006 – 2009;
  • Peugeot 307 I (T5/T6) in 2005 – 2008;
  • Peugeot 308 I (T7) in 2007 – 2010;
  • Peugeot Partner I (M49/M59) in 2005 – 2008; Partner II (B9) in 2008 – 2010.

Disadvantages of the DV6ATED4 engine

  • The first years of diesel production were overshadowed by the problem of rapid wear of the camshafts, as well as the destruction of the timing chain tensioner, which links the camshafts here. Then the manufacturer improved the quality of manufacturing units and everything immediately returned to normal.
  • Units equipped with a particulate filter received an air dispenser with a pair of dampers, which often flows, and lubricant flows onto the timing belt and auxiliary units. The air dispenser version without a particulate filter can drive oil into the intake manifold.
  • One of the most common complaints is the low resource of the turbine. But most often the reason is not its reliability, but a clogged coarse oil filter, which is located in the oil pipe fitting, which supplies lubricant to the turbocharger.
  • The rest of the breakdowns are typical for many diesel engines: the EGR quickly gets dirty and wedges, the particulate filter runs a little, the refractory washers under the nozzles constantly burn out. And with a broken timing belt, rockers break here and the camshaft cams can be damaged.
