Common Issues

MAF deterioration: Another common problem on any engine that relies on a MAF (Mass Airflow Sensor) to adjust the Air/Fuel ration going into the engine. Over time, the sensor on the MAF can become covered in oil, dirt and other deposits as air flows through it. A simple fix is to remove the sensor, soak in Isopropyl Alcohol for 5 minutes to break down the build up of dirt, and clean with a cotton bud. Another option is to replace the MAF altogether


This engine is an electronically controlled Turbo Diesel engine with side mounted (in the E50) intercooler. The engine incorporates a draw through MAF system for fuel/air ratio during combustion. There is no timing belt/chain on this engine, but rather it is operated using a system of interconnecting cogs.
