Disadvantages of the EP6FDTR engine

  • The main problem here is the coking of the intake and oil lines due to overheating.
  • And if you miss this moment, then the turbine will fail from oil starvation.
  • The timing chain does not have a large resource either, sometimes it is replaced even up to 100,000 km.
  • The weak points of this power unit include the thermostat, water pump and injection pump.
