Engine Overview and Common Failures

The weight of the LDK engine according to the catalog is 163 kg. The LDK engine number is located on the oil filter housing. The main problem with turbo engines in this range is their high tendency for detonation. Therefore, it is extremely important to monitor both fuel quality and radiator cleanliness. Another well-known issue is the relatively low service life of the timing chain mechanism. And if the chain noise is ignored, the camshaft phasers will also need to be replaced. Some of the weaknesses of the engine include the not-so-durable electronic throttle and the fuel injection pump.
