Engine Overview and Common Failures

The weight of the 2VZ-FE engine according to the catalog is 195 kg. The engine number 2VZ-FE is located at the junction of the block and the cylinder head. Often, in these engines, the cylinder head gasket was cracked due to a blown gasket. Frequently, the unreliable fan hydraulic drive was the cause of overheating. There is increased wear on the main crankshaft journals and connecting rod bearings. It is very difficult to find spare parts for this engine, and they are quite expensive. We should also mention the high fuel consumption and increasing oil consumption as negatives.
