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.
