Engine Overview and Common Failures

The weight of the VG30ET engine according to the catalog is 225 kg. The VG30ET engine number is located at the junction of the block and the gearbox. The most dangerous thing is the breaking off of the crankshaft tail, which often leads to valve bending. The gasket of the exhaust manifold burns out, and when it is removed, the bolts break. Replacing the bolts with thicker ones carries the risk of future cracking of the manifold. The timing belt has a lifespan of about 70 thousand km, and if it breaks, the valves are almost always bent. After 100 thousand km, leaks in the pump and noises from the hydraulic compensators are often encountered.
