Engine Overview and Common Failures

The weight of the KF-DE engine is 175 kg (with attachments). The engine number is located at the junction of the block and the cylinder head. The aluminum block is highly susceptible to overheating, so please monitor the cooling system. After 100-150 thousand kilometers of mileage, these power units often consume oil. Leaks from under the valve covers are also commonly found at similar mileages. The timing belt should be replaced every 80,000 km, but it rarely bends in case of valve failure. Due to poor quality oil, hydraulic compensators may start knocking even before reaching 50,000 km.
