Disadvantages of the VW CAYC engine
- This diesel engine is considered quite reliable, but it does not like bad fuel.
- Therefore, most of his problems are somehow connected with failures of piezo injectors.
- Even in this engine, it regularly presses grease from under the plastic valve cover.
- The timing belt runs for a long time, but requires attention or, if it breaks, it will bend the valves.
- Also, a lot of problems for owners are thrown by a particulate filter and an EGR valve.
