Disadvantages of the EDV engine

  • The main thing is to monitor the cooling system, as this motor often overheats;
  • In addition, antifreeze leaks regularly occur here, which aggravates the situation;
  • The timing belt needs to be replaced every 100,000 km, or if it breaks, the valve will bend;
  • From bad gasoline, fuel injectors quickly become clogged and require flushing;
  • Already after 100 – 150 thousand kilometers, a decent oil consumption may appear.
