Engine Peugeot DV6TED4

The 1.6-liter diesel engine Peugeot DV6TED4 or 1.6 HDi 109 was assembled from 2004 to 2011 and installed on almost all famous cars of the French concern. There were two versions of this engine: 9HY for Euro 3 and 9HZ for Euro 4 with a particulate filter.

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

In 2004, the first diesel from the large 1.6 HDi family debuted on the Peugeot 407 model. The design of this motor is typical: a 4-cylinder aluminum block with cast-iron sleeves, an aluminum head for 16 valves with hydraulic compensators and a combined timing drive: the crankshaft is connected to the exhaust camshaft by a belt, and the intake and exhaust shafts are already chain.

The injection here is carried out by the Bosch Common Rail system with electromagnetic injectors, and all modifications are equipped with supercharging in the form of a Garrett GT1544V turbine, as well as an intercooler. A number of versions have an Overboost mode, which briefly increases the motor torque by 20 Nm.

Disadvantages of the DV6TED4 engine

  • In the early years of production, these engines suffered from rapid wear of the camshaft cams, as well as the destruction of the hydraulic chain tensioner, which is located between the camshafts. Over time, the quality of manufacture of these units has increased and the problem is almost gone.
  • Modifications with a particulate filter were equipped with an air dispenser with two dampers, which often leaked and grease poured onto the timing belt and auxiliary units. The pneumodispenser of versions without a particulate filter also often drives oil, but already into the intake.
  • Reliable on other engines, the Garrett GT15V turbine runs suspiciously little here. Usually the cause of its early failure is a clogged coarse filter, which is located in the fitting of the oil pipe, which supplies lubricant to the turbocharger.
  • As in any modern diesel engine, the EGR valve gets dirty and sticks very quickly here, the particulate filter does not last long, the refractory washers under the nozzles often burn out, and when the timing belt breaks, the rockers break and the camshaft cams are damaged.
