Engine Overview and Common Failures

The weight of the VG20ET engine according to the catalog is 205 kg. The VG20ET engine number is located at the junction of the block and the gearbox. When the engine runs unevenly, it is necessary to clean or replace faulty injectors. Rarely, but the crankshaft tail with valve bending in the engine can break. Closer to 200,000 km, hydraulic lifters often start knocking or the water pump starts leaking. Regularly, it is necessary to replace the burnt gasket of the exhaust manifold here. It is very difficult to remove the exhaust without breaking the bolts, which are then not so easy to put back.
