  • The main owner problems are caused by regular oil and antifreeze leaks;
  • The Siemens fuel system with piezo injectors is demanding on fuel quality;
  • Dosing valve and EGR system get dirty quickly and require frequent cleaning;
  • Monitor the condition of the timing belt, as when it breaks, it breaks the rocker in the motor;
  • All versions of this diesel engine are equipped with a particulate filter, and its resource is small.
