Disadvantages of the SsangYong D20DTF engine

  • In the early years, the Delphi fuel system and especially the high-pressure fuel pump delivered a lot of trouble;
  • Then it became easier, but still the injectors often pour, and even stick to the cylinder head;
  • Rotation of the crankshaft liners is considered the second most common failure here;
  • The reason is a drop in oil pressure due to long driving at low speeds.;
  • Weaknesses also include a turbine, a temperature sensor and a crankshaft damper.
