Disadvantages of the ECC engine
- The main problem of the internal combustion engine of this line is considered to be overheating with a breakdown of the cylinder head gasket;
- So watch out for antifreeze leaks, pipes and a thermostat often crack here;
- We should not forget about the timing belt resource of 100,000 km, when the valve breaks, it bends;
- When using 92nd gasoline, the fuel filter and injectors quickly clog;
- On long runs, an oil burner and oil leaks from oil seals are often found here.
