Disadvantages of the Rover 20T2N engine

  • This diesel is reliable, but there are problems with spare parts;
  • The main troubles are associated with failures of the Bosch VP37 electronically controlled high-pressure fuel pump;
  • In second place here is the turbine, which often drives oil to 100,000 km;
  • The timing belt changes every 100,000 km, or if it breaks, the valves will bend;
  • The weak points of the unit include short-lived supports and oil cooler tubes.
