Disadvantages of the Audi CJEB engine

  • The main problems of this engine are associated with a drop in oil pressure in the system;
  • This is due to clogged bearing strainers or malfunctions of the oil pump;
  • Quite quickly here the timing chain is pulled out, and the phase regulators do not last long;
  • Many breakdowns in the cooling system: a pump with a thermostat or valve N488 is leaking;
  • With frequent power failures, adjusting the boost pressure actuator usually helps.
