Disadvantages of the Peugeot XUD7 engine

  • This reliable and picky fuel engine has a huge resource;
  • Due to the fault of a low-lying expansion tank, the antifreeze level often drops;
  • Therefore, this power unit often overheats and breaks through the cylinder head gasket;
  • The service life of the injection pump here is very much dependent on the frequency of replacing the fuel filter;
  • About once every 100 thousand km you will need to adjust the valve clearances.
