Disadvantages of the D4204T8 engine

  • The biggest problem is constantly bursting rubber pipes;
  • Most often this concerns one tube that goes to the turbocharger;
  • Next in terms of mass are oil leaks from oil seals or from under the valve cover;
  • The timing belt is designed for a run of 120 thousand km, and when it breaks, the valves bend;
  • Recall campaigns were carried out for the diesel particulate filter and intake manifold.
