Disadvantages of the D5244T15 engine

  • First of all, you need to monitor the condition of the timing belt and change it every 60,000 km;
  • The alternator belt serves even less, and if it breaks, it falls under the timing belt;
  • Hydraulic lifters do not like saving on oil and can knock already by 100,000 km;
  • Even here, the EGR valve, as well as the throttle valve, quickly get dirty and wedge;
  • On a run of 200,000 km, liners often burst and antifreeze mixes with oil.
