— official information
A knock in the power unit appears due to wear on the camshaft, hydraulic lifters and rocker arms. Verification required.
If the revolutions are unstable, the reason may be hidden in the violation of the integrity of the duct, air leaks are possible. They also inspect the lambda probe, DMRV, KXX and the throttle valve. If the camshaft is difficult to rotate, this causes a floating speed problem.
The engine begins to overheat when the pump, radiator, thermostat breaks down. Air pockets in the cooling system may be the cause. You also need to check the integrity of the plastic pipes in the cooling system.
When the engine jerks during acceleration, it is most likely that the injectors need to be cleaned. If the engine does not start, check the spark plugs, the fuel pump, the ignition coil, and high-voltage wires.
