Engine Overview and Common Failures

Most often, users complain on the forum about fluctuating/increased idle speed. The usual cause of this is dirt on the throttle body, sensor glitches, or a malfunctioning idle stabilization valve. Next in popularity are failures in the ignition system: spark plugs, distributor cap, and wires. Hydraulic lifters don't like cheap oil and can start ticking before reaching 100,000 km. With high mileage, oil consumption often starts due to worn piston rings or valve seals.
