Disadvantages of the D4164T engine

  • On engines of the first years of production, camshaft cams quickly wore out;
  • Also, the chain between the camshafts was often extended, which knocked down the timing phases;
  • The turbine often fails, usually due to clogging of its oil filter;
  • The reason for carbon formation here is in weak refractory washers under the nozzles;
  • The remaining problems are associated with contamination of the particulate filter and the EGR valve.
