Self Study Program 820433 – The EA288 Diesel Engine Family

VAG SSP 820433. In this Self-Study Program you will learn about the structure and design of the new EA288 TDI engine, and the functions of the individual engine subsystems.

Volkswagen is introducing a new family of diesel engines in the 2015 Golf. The engine family has the designation EA288 (EA = Entwicklungsauftrag [development order]).

The design of this new generation of diesel engines was based on the existing EA189 engine family. Displacement, cylinder spacing, stroke and bore ratio are shared between the EA189 and the new EA288 gasoline engines. The new EA288 engine design forms the basis for all future inline diesel engines at Volkswagen.

Several sub-assemblies were redesigned in the EA 288 family of 4-cylinder diesel engines to satisfy future emission standards.
