Disadvantages of the EDT engine

  • Watch the cooling system or overheating will quickly lead the block head;
  • Antifreeze leaks through cracks in pipes and a thermostat are also common;
  • The timing belt resource is about 100,000 km, and when it breaks, the valve always bends here;
  • Fuel injectors do not tolerate bad gasoline and require regular flushing;
  • On a run of over 150,000 km, this power unit often already consumes oil.
