What is a PD TDI engine?

PD means ‘pumpe düse’ indicating that there is a pump in each injector. This setup gives a very high working pressure (around 2000 bar), wich again gives finer fuel spray and more complete combustion. It also has much better control of injected fuel volume, and injection time than the old system.

What is CR TDI?

The ‘CR’ stands for common rail – a direct injection fuel system where fuel at very high pressure is delivered via a common pipe (rail) to electronically controlled solenoid valves that meter the fuel into the cylinder.

Are PD engines common rail?

So while PD diesels are the better choice for muscular performance, they tend not to be as refined as common-rail engines.

How long will a 2.0 TDI last?

The TDI engine may last up to 500k miles but everything around it won’t. And if you depend on VW dealerships to perform the repairs, plus the added premium of diesel fuel over high octane gas, the long term cost savings will erode.

Which is better a PD or a CR engine?

I seem to have missed the passat! CR comes in either 1.6 blue motion 110 or 2.0 140. Blue motion promises excellent MPG. Also are there any later 2.0 PD engine codes that have revisions for the oil pump shaft, injectors and porous heads? 1.6CR is a gutless POS….. avoid.

What’s the difference between 2.0 TDI and TDI CR?

The 2.0 TDI CR uses its pistons with a more volume combustion chamber, because of this the engine has lower compression ratio 16.5:1. The most noticeable change is the new cylinder head. It is made of aluminum and has for valves per cylinder and two camshafts.

Which is the 2.0 TDI common rail engine?

The 2.0 TDI Common Rail engine is based on previous version – the 2.0 TDI PD engine. This new engine belongs to the EA189 family (VW Emission scandal), which including the 1.6 TDI engine and 3-cylinder 1.2 TDI engine also.

Which is the best 2.0 CR diesel engine?

Looks good. Are we in agreement that whatever four wheeled box it comes in, the 2.0 cr 140 is the one to go for? The 2.0 CR is indeed best pick, very refined, quiet for a diesel and doesn’t get all wheezy at higher revs like older tech diesels. I’ve only first hand experience of the 170, but imagine the 140 to be adequate.
