Disadvantages of the VW BMP engine
- The most famous engine problem is the oil pump hex problem.
- The resource of unit-injectors is approximately 250,000 km, and their replacement is very expensive.
- Oil consumption up to 1 liter per 1000 km is also regularly discussed at specialized forums.
- The culprit for failures in engine thrust is usually a jammed turbine geometry.
- The reason for the unstable operation of a diesel engine may also be a dirty particulate filter.
