  • The resource of the turbocharger is also reduced when operating with a clogged catalyst;
  • The main reason for floating engine speeds is air leakage in the intake manifold;
  • Electrically, the flow meter and the coolant temperature sensor fail here;
  • The weak points of the engine include the oil pump, chain tensioner and crankcase ventilation.
