Engine Overview and Common Failures

The most well-known problem is the cracks in the cylinder head, but you can drive with them for a long time. It is important to regularly check for fuel pump leaks and keep an eye on it. According to regulations, the timing belt should be replaced every 60,000 km, and in case of valve bending, immediate action is necessary. Around 200,000 km, attention should be paid to the turbocharger and intermediate shaft bushings. On high mileage, oil consumption and leakage of lubricant from multiple places are often encountered.
