Disadvantages of the D5204T engine

  • This is a modern CR diesel with 1800 bar piezo injectors and a diesel particulate filter;
  • The most common problem is the rapid contamination of the throttle or EGR valve;
  • From low-quality oils, hydraulic lifters can knock to 100,000 km of run;
  • In the fuel system, injectors and a regulator valve in the rail are most often worried;
  • Change the ribbed belt in time or if it breaks, it will be pulled under the timing belt.
