Disadvantages of the Audi CCTA engine
- Over the entire period of production, the motor has been modernized more than once and its reliability has grown.
- At first, the main problem was the timing chain, it did not serve even up to 100,000 km.
- The engine quickly overgrows with soot and requires periodic decarbonization.
- Also, the crankcase ventilation system regularly clogs and oil consumption appears.
- Not the most outstanding resource here is the ignition coils and the water pump.
