Disadvantages of the EP6FADTR engine

  • So far, the bulk of complaints here are related to electrical failures or oil leaks.
  • The timing chain does not have a large resource either, sometimes it stretches up to 100,000 km.
  • Due to direct fuel injection, the intake valves are very quickly overgrown with soot.
  • The predecessor of this unit often suffered from an oil burner, let’s see how it will be here.
