Engine Overview and Common Failures

The weight of the LKW engine according to the catalog is 152 kg. The LKW engine number is located at the junction of the block and the gearbox. First of all, this is quite a rare engine and there is minimal information about it on forums. It is only criticized for fluctuating idle speeds or glitches in the Start-Stop system. Like all direct injection engines, the intake valves quickly get clogged with carbon deposits. There are also several complaints about oil leakage through the oil pressure sensor. As for the operation of the iVLC system, there is nothing to say yet, as it has not broken down for anyone.
