Engine Overview and Common Failures

The weight of the CTHA engine according to the catalog is 130 kg. The engine number CTHA is located at the joint of the block and the gearbox. The main problems of this engine are related to detonation due to fuel quality. Often, the pistons simply crack and it is recommended to replace them with forged ones. The unit is prone to carbon deposits on the valves, which leads to a decrease in compression. The timing chain has a modest lifespan and can stretch as early as 100,000 km. The electronic control valve often fails, and less frequently, the wastegate of the turbine. Many forum users also complain about frequent coolant leaks around the intercooler. It is also worth noting the modest lifespan and high cost of the water pump.
