Engine Overview and Common Failures

The weight of the LFB479Q engine according to the catalog is 128 kg. The engine number LFB479Q is located at the junction of the block and the gearbox. The main problem of this unit is the lubrication consumption due to ring sticking. Ignoring oil consumption can result in catalytic converter failure, which is dangerous for the engine. The timing chain lasts about 150,000 km, but its tensioner may loosen earlier. The VVT phaser has a rather modest lifespan, but the replacement is inexpensive. Don't forget about adjusting the valve's thermal clearance, as they burn out very quickly.
