Engine Overview and Common Failures

The weight of the MR20DE engine according to the catalog is 118 kg. The engine number for MR20DE is located at the junction of the block and gearbox. Oil consumption can be a problem with this engine, as many owners complain about it even with low mileage. To eliminate excessive oil consumption, proper oil selection, decarbonization, or even overhaul may be necessary. The timing chain has a lower lifespan than expected. While the official lifespan is until 200,000 km, in reality, it often requires replacement before that, usually along with the phaser. There have been cases reported on specialized forums of significant power loss in hot weather. The main culprit seems to be the air temperature sensor, which is integrated into the intake manifold. The aluminum cylinder head is quite delicate and susceptible to cracking due to overheating or excessive force applied by mechanics during bolt tightening or spark plug installation. Be extremely careful, as a cracked cylinder head may require finding a new one. Some minor issues that can occur include fluctuating idle speed due to throttle body contamination, constant belt squealing from accessory components, and valve adjustments to address knocking noises.
