Engine Overview and Common Failures

The weight of the C35A engine according to the catalog is 221 kg. The C35A engine number is located behind the oil dipstick. This engine is known for its high reliability but also for its high fuel consumption. The main problems for owners are oil leaks from under the valve covers. If lubrication gets into the spark plug wells, the ignition coils will need to be replaced. Lambda sensors and the balance belt have a relatively low lifespan. Progressive oil consumption often starts at mileages over 200,000 km.
