  • This leads to floating engine speeds, as well as airing the system and overheating.
  • Also often the engine overheats due to the failure of the thermostat or water pump.
  • Saving on oil greatly affects the resource of hydraulic lifters and liners.
  • The timing belt needs to be changed every 60,000 km, or if it breaks, the valves will bend.
