Disadvantages of the VW CLJA engine
- This is a very reliable diesel engine, the weaknesses of its predecessors have already been eliminated in it;
- Instead of capricious piezo injectors, there are electromagnetic ones and there are no swirl flaps;
- According to the regulations, the timing belt is designed for 210 thousand km, but when it breaks, the valves bend;
- Quite regularly, oil leaks from under the plastic valve covers occur here;
- At high mileage, a particulate filter or an EGR valve can deliver a lot of trouble.
