Engine Overview and Common Failures

The weight of the B16B engine according to the catalog is 128 kg. The engine number B16B is located at the junction of the block and the gearbox. Despite the degree of tuning, this engine does not have any weak points. After 150-200 thousand km of mileage, it periodically starts to blow the cylinder head gasket. Pay attention to the condition of the timing belt, its lifespan is 90,000 km, and with valve interference, the valve can break. There are no hydraulic compensators here, and valve adjustment is required every 40,000 km.
