Engine Overview and Common Failures

The most well-known problem of the engine is oil consumption due to scoring in the cylinders. The finicky direct injection system also causes many issues for owners. The timing chains do not have the longest lifespan and their replacement is complex and expensive. The plastic intake manifold is prone to cracking and losing its seal. Ignition coils often fail, and leaks can occur at the junction of the engine and transmission.
