Engine Peugeot DV6CTED

The 1.6-liter Peugeot DV6CTED or DV6C 1.6 e-HDi 115 engine was produced from 2009 to 2017 and was installed on many popular cars of the French concern of its time. There were two versions of this engine: 9HR for Euro 5 with a particulate filter and 9HG for Euro 4 without it.

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

In 2009, an updated version of the DV6TED4 diesel unit appeared under the DV6C index, which was distinguished by the presence of an 8-valve head instead of the 16-valve cylinder head of its predecessor. Thus, the new engine finally got rid of the problematic chain between the camshafts. But the aluminum 4-cylinder block with cast-iron sleeves did not receive any special changes.

The Siemens Common Rail system with piezo injectors is responsible for diesel fuel injection, supercharging is carried out by a Garrett GTC1244VZ turbine with variable geometry and an intercooler. Most versions of this diesel are equipped with a Start-Stop system and are designated as e-HDi, and there are modifications with Overboost that can increase torque by 15 Nm. In a number of markets, Euro 4 modifications of the DV6CTEDM unit without a particulate filter were offered.

Disadvantages of the DV6CTED engine

  • This diesel is equipped with a Siemens/Continental common rail system with piezo injectors, which is very reliable and works without problems when using normal fuel. However, if low-quality fuel is poured into the tank, then repairs will be very expensive.
  • Sometimes in diesel engines of this family there is an unexpected separation of the valve plate, which leads to engine failure. Probably a defective batch of valves.
  • As with most modern diesel engines, the EGR valve and metering valve often coke and jam here, which leads to very unstable operation of the unit.
  • A feature of the motors of this series are frequent oil leaks from under the valve cover. Also, often antifreeze oozes out of the oil filter heat exchanger gasket. If the timing belt breaks, you will have to change not only the broken rockers, but also the camshaft.
