Engine Overview and Common Failures

The dry weight of the BYT engine according to the catalog is 154 kg. The engine number for the BYT is located at the junction with the gearbox. This engine was only produced for six months, so there is minimal information about its reliability. During the modernization, the manufacturer changed the VCG system, probably due to its issues. All engines in this series have a modest timing chain lifespan, sometimes less than 100,000 km. Complaints are often found online regarding fluctuating RPM caused by carbon deposits on the intake valves. The weak points of this engine range include the catalytic converter, pump, and ignition coils.
