Engine Overview and Common Failures

The weight of the AFT engine assembly is 125 kg. The AFT engine number is located at the junction of the block and the cylinder head. The main problems that owners face are fluctuating RPMs and engine vibrations. The fight against unstable engine performance begins with cleaning the injectors and throttle body. The PCV valve often fails and its tube may rupture. The thermostat and coolant temperature sensor do not have the highest lifespan. Oil consumption starts due to ring and valve cover wear at mileages over 200,000 km.
