Disadvantages of the Porsche MCR.CC engine
- Diesel engines of the EA897 family are very reliable and, with proper maintenance, do not bother;
- But the Common Rail system with piezo injectors is very demanding on fuel quality;
- There are complaints about oil leaks in the cylinder block and a short-lived fuel pump in the tank;
- After 200,000 km, timing chains can stretch;
- As always, a lot of trouble is associated with contamination of the particulate filter and the EGR valve.
