Disadvantages of the VW BKD engine
- In the early years of production, antifreeze leaks regularly occurred due to cracks in the cylinder head;
- Also, these motors often consume oil up to 1 liter per 1000 kilometers;
- Unit-injectors have a resource of about 200 – 250 thousand km, and are very expensive;
- The geometry of the turbine wedges from pollution, as well as the plastic gears of the throttle;
- A clogged particulate filter or EGR valve throws up a lot of problems for the owner.
