Disadvantages of the Porsche M05.9E engine

  • Diesels of the EA896 line suffered from rapid wear of the injection pump, it simply drove chips;
  • But this unit appeared at the very end of the release of the series and bothered a little less often;
  • The weak points of the motor include swirl flaps and a tee of the cooling system;
  • After 200,000 km, timing chains often stretch here;
  • Also, a lot of trouble can be caused by contamination of the particulate filter and the EGR valve.
