Engine Overview and Common Failures

The catalog weight of the Z10XE engine is 85 kg. The engine number Z10XE is located at the junction of the block and the gearbox. The overall reliable power unit is most often troubled by electrical issues. Failures in the electrical system are usually related to weak wiring and glitches in the ECU block. The timing chain has a short lifespan and can stretch even at 100,000 km. Owners regularly visit the service center to replace the oil pump or thermostat. If cheap oils are overused, the hydraulic lifters will not last long.
