    • This was a much improved version of the PVR engine that solved the oiling issues of the earlier version. Volvo's documentation states that this engine was available up until 1990 but we haven't seen any past early 1988.
  • D24T
    • Available from 1983 through 1985
    • Volkswagen 2.4L turbocharged diesel inline 6 cylinder OHC
    • This engine is popular with the bio-diesel crowd
    • These engines tended to be very reliable to the point that they generally got ignored and didn't get maintained properly. Lack of maintenance (oil changes, injection pump timing adjustments and cooling system flushes) resulted in many of these engines eventually having the piston rings seize up resulting in a serious loss of compression and thus a no-start condition. Reports of overheating and cylinder head damage are also common.
