Problems and malfunctions - 2.7 TDI engine
It is important to note that the 2.7 TDI is a much more successful engine than the 2.5 TDI, which is considered one of the biggest accidents of the German concern. However, he is not deprived of several significant shortcomings. Let's start with the drive. The manufacturer claims that the chain-based system is indestructible. In practice, however, it turns out that even this solution has a limited lifespan. In the case of this engine, it is recommended to replace it at about 300.000 kilometers. After all, you can talk about high endurance.
Another thing with the chain as the drive. Both tensioners and chains are relatively expensive elements. True, operating costs can be a major problem for this unit. Although not too common, its construction is complicated, so a possible replacement involves a lot of money.
Another proof of this is the Bosch piezoelectric injectors listed above. Often, diesel-powered car users give these elements for regeneration. In the case of 2.7 TDIs, this is not possible because they are practically irreparable.
