Disadvantages of the Alfa Romeo AR67301 engine
- On the engines of the first years, the cams of the exhaust camshaft wore out rather quickly.
- Another weak point of this power unit is the valve guides.
- Also on specialized forums, the unreliable hydraulic timing belt tensioner is often scolded.
- A lot of trouble here is caused by constant leaks, and especially on cylinder head gaskets.
- The remaining problems are related to air leaks in the intake and engine overheating.
