Cleaning the injectors or throttle often helps to get rid of these troubles. The second most common issues are related to the crankcase ventilation system. Owners also often complain about the loss of sealing of the intake manifold. Usually, at around 200,000 km, the rings or caps wear out and oil consumption starts.
