Engine Overview and Common Failures

The weight of the F20C engine according to the catalog is 160 kg. The engine number F20C is located at the junction of the block and the cylinder head. This power unit is extremely demanding in terms of oil quality and frequency of its replacement. The most well-known problem is the destruction of retainers, which is fatal for the engine. After 100-150 thousand km mileage, the timing chain tensioner often requires replacement. At the same mileage, oil consumption usually starts due to ring or cap wear. Additionally, this engine is prone to regular leaks of lubricant and coolant.
