Engine Overview and Common Failures

The dry weight of the CAWA engine according to the catalog is 152 kg. The CAWA engine number is located at the junction with the gearbox. The weak point of this engine is the timing chain, which stretches by 100,000 km. Additionally, the oil separator quickly gets clogged, leading to lubrication consumption. Pistons often crack due to detonation, but there are alternative forged ones available. The culprit of fluctuating engine revs is usually carbon deposits on the intake valves. The swirl flaps in the intake manifold also get clogged with carbon and then seize up. If you delay replacing the spark plugs, you will also have to spend money on ignition coils.
