Default Common problems in DDiS

Hi All,

I would like to know about the common niggling problems found around the famous DDiS engine. I am planning to buy Ritz VDi, would like to know about the engine more and its problem. Owners of Swift, DZire and Vista please share your thoughts.

Thanks a lot.

DDiS engine, or the MJD, has problems? First I am hearing of this. It seems to be a bulletproof one.

Even i thought they are bullet proof, but it is not the case. What i heard from few friends is that, they are getting issues after 30K in Odo. Lets wait for the confirmation from other owners.

1. Horrible clatter that comes from the hydraulic tappets. Have driven a lot of Crdi engines but none that sound so bad.
2. Horrible rev range and lack of a decent top end for an engine so advanced.
3. Sudden drop of power, there is another thread discussing this issue as we speak.

As far as my experience goes:
Its a great engine, very fuel efficient and nice power delivery. Its a turbo diesel and power band short and sweet, the way it should be.

Has a bit of pitter patter but subsides considerably as the km's are covered. Usage of proper grade oil and good fuel makes a hell lot of difference.

Its touchy when it comes to hot climates, but no way a big bother for a common user, yes clean air filter is a must, which will bring that grin back on your face.

Have done 32k kms and still grinning on.

You can read up on some alleged issues here https://www.team-bhp.com/forum/techn...thread-11.html

Do a "search" for swift diesel and you will get the better user experiences from other ownership thread.

Mods note: Thread closed! Please use search before opening a new thread.
Thanks
