Disadvantages of the VW AVB engine
- The reliability of this engine largely depends on the quality of the oil used.
- Poor lubrication contributes to wear of the camshaft cams and hydraulic lifters.
- Unsuccessful fastening of unit-injectors with one bolt often results in leaks.
- Because of this, fuel can enter the lubrication system, which is very dangerous for the unit.
- Also on specialized forums, problems with the turbine and tandem pump are constantly discussed.
