Disadvantages of the Alfa Romeo 960A1000 engine

  • For such power, this turbo engine is quite reliable and does not have any special problems;
  • The fuel injection here is direct and the intake valves are very quickly overgrown with soot;
  • The resource of the turbine and hydraulic compensators is highly dependent on the lubricant change schedule;
  • Change the timing belt every 60,000 km, or if it breaks, the valves will bend;
  • With very active driving, oil consumption often appears up to a liter per 1000 km.
