Disadvantages of the EP6FDT engine

  • The power unit has been seriously updated and many of the problems of the EP series no longer concern it.
  • Unfortunately, the timing chain resource is still small, it rarely even reaches 100,000 km.
  • The motor, like its predecessor, quickly cokes and requires regular cleaning from carbon deposits.
  • Often the electromagnetic clutch in the drive of a mechanical water pump fails.
  • The new high-pressure fuel pump is more reliable than the old one, but it is also very demanding on fuel quality.
