Engine Overview and Common Failures

The weight of the L13B engine according to the catalog is 100 kg. The engine number L13B is located at the junction of the block and the gearbox. The engine has been produced recently and has not had a chance to prove itself in a negative way. However, judging by other engines in this lineup, it should be very reliable. The tight underhood layout slightly complicates servicing of the power unit. Several owners on the forum complain about the quick failure of ignition coils. There are no hydraulic compensators, and the valve clearances need to be adjusted every 50 thousand km.
