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.
