Disadvantages of the Peugeot TUD3 engine

  • Unusual for diesel engines, the design in the form of wet sleeves had a modest resource;
  • At a run of 100 thousand km, the engine often already consumed a huge amount of oil;
  • After 150,000 km, critical piston wear set in and the motor simply caught a wedge;
  • The timing belt here does not go very long, but changes with certain difficulties.
