Disadvantages of the Rover 20T2R engine
- The problem with this diesel engine is not reliability, but its rarity and lack of spare parts;
- An intercooler is not provided here and a Bosch VP21 mechanical injection pump is used;
- The turbine does not have a large resource and often drives oil already to 100,000 km;
- The timing belt here is designed for 100 thousand km, and when it breaks, the valves usually bend;
- Another weakness of the engine include short-lived supports and oil cooler tubes.
