Engine Overview and Common Failures

The weight of the KJ-ZEM engine according to the catalog is 205 kg. The engine number for KJ-ZEM is located at the junction of the engine and the gearbox. The main problem is the failures of the compressor, which costs 300 thousand rubles. Additionally, the aluminum block is highly susceptible to overheating, so please monitor the cooling system. During mileage of 100,000 km, the engine often consumes around 1 liter of oil per 1000 km. The timing belt is designed for 80,000 km, and although the replacement is expensive, it does not bend with valve breakage. There are no hydraulic compensators, and the valve clearances need to be adjusted every 100,000 km.
