Engine Overview and Common Failures

This engine is quite reliable and often only the timing chain tensioner is of concern. The intake manifold flap regulator also occasionally fails. The reason for fluctuating engine speeds is usually due to throttle or injector contamination. The coolant temperature sensor and the airflow meter have a low lifespan. The crankcase ventilation regularly gets clogged, leading to a loss of power, etc.
