Disadvantages of the VW AJS engine
- First of all, this diesel engine is known for the rather modest resource of its turbines.
- Also, the timing gear mechanism is not very reliable.
- Often there are leaks on the seals of the tandem pump or unit-injectors.
- On a long run, shedding of the coating of the cylinder walls is often found.
- Another weak point of this unit is the air conditioner clutch and generator.
