Disadvantages of the XUD7TE engine

  • Many engine problems are related to the low location of the expansion tank;
  • Due to a decrease in the level of coolant, the engine boils and pierces the gasket;
  • Poor quality oil quickly affects the performance of a turbocharger;
  • And the service life of the injection pump is highly dependent on the regularity of replacing the fuel filter;
  • There are no hydraulic lifters, so the valve clearances will have to be adjusted by yourself.
