Engine Overview and Common Failures

The weight of the VQ30DD engine according to the catalog is 190 kg. The engine number for the VQ30DD is located at the junction of the block and the gearbox. Many problems with this engine are related to the consumption of low-quality fuel. The injectors in the engine constantly become clogged, causing the fuel injection pump or MAF sensor to fail. Deposits on the intake valves often lead to detonation issues. Poor gasoline destroys the catalyst, and its particles get sucked into the combustion chamber. This is why there are scratches on the cylinder walls and oil consumption increases.
