Disadvantages of the 10JBAX engine

  • The main problems for the owner are caused by regular oil and antifreeze leaks.
  • Also here, phases often go astray due to chain stretching between the camshafts.
  • The grease coarse filter clogs quickly, which reduces the life of the turbine.
  • Monitor the condition of the timing belt or prepare for a major overhaul after it breaks.
  • The weak points of the engine include fire-resistant washers under the nozzles and the EGR valve.
