Disadvantages of the ED6 engine

  • Most often, owners on specialized forums complain about high oil consumption;
  • From oil burner on low runs, the use of a thicker lubricant usually helps;
  • With prolonged waste of oil, the MultiAir channels are clogged, and its repair is not cheap;
  • Ignition coils often fail due to oil getting into spark plug wells.
