Engine Overview and Common Failures

The weight of the VQ20DE engine according to the catalog is 175 kg. The engine number can be found at the junction of the block and the gearbox. Complaints about fluctuating RPM are often due to contamination of the idle air control valve. Periodic adjustment of the throttle position sensor is also required for smooth engine operation. Since there are no hydraulic compensators, the thermal clearances of the valves also need to be adjusted. A set of timing chains will need to be replaced around 200,000 - 250,000 km of mileage. The engine is sensitive to overheating, so constantly monitor the condition of the cooling system. Power units with high mileage almost always suffer from oil consumption.
