Engine Toyota 1VD-FTV under the hood

Engine Toyota 1VD-FTV

The 1VD-FTV engine is Toyota’s first V8 diesel. It replaced the old and proven “six” 1HD-FTE. To meet Euro 5 standards, the engine is equipped with a water-cooled outlet gas recirculation (EGR) system, a catalytic converter and a particulate filter.

Russian versions of the engine before restyling in 2015 removed 235 hp and 615 Nm. After 2015 – 249 hp and 650 Nm. This was due to taxation; in other countries, the engine power was increased to 265 and 272 forces. It is not necessary to adjust the valves here – there are hydraulic lifters. The 1VD-FTV is a fairly reliable engine, thanks to its volume, but capricious to maintain.

Explanation of designation:

  • 1 – engine generation;
  • VD – engine family;
  • F – two-shaft timing (DOHC);
  • T – turbocharging;
  • V – direct injection D-4D Common rail.

Frequent problems

  • engines before 2010 had an oil burner due to the fault of the vacuum pump;
  • there is a risk of damaging the engine by improperly installing the oil filter;
  • the reliability of the water pump is low, often it surrenders up to 100,000 km;
  • there are frequent cases of engine breakdown after a long drive at high speeds;
  • too aggressive chip tuning can lead to crankshaft damage;
  • the fuel filter is sometimes only enough for a couple of thousand kilometers;
  • the diesel particulate filter and EGR valve are prone to contamination (inspection and, if necessary, cleaning required).
