Engine Overview and Common Failures

The weight of the VQ30DET engine according to the catalog is 230 kg. The engine number VQ30DET is located at the junction of the block and the gearbox. Owners often complain about excessive oil consumption due to the appearance of scuffing in the cylinders. The cylinders are scratched by catalyst particles that are sucked into the combustion chamber. Overheating often causes warping of the mating surfaces of the cylinder head. The timing chains stretch significantly and start to rattle around 200,000 km mileage. The reason for the fluctuating engine speed is usually due to a dirty idle control valve.
