Disadvantages of the EGA engine

  • The power units of this series are reliable, but have high fuel consumption;
  • On the motor until the year 2000, the valve rocker axle supports regularly broke;
  • In 2002, they began to install a plastic intake manifold and it often cracks;
  • Aluminum heads often warp from overheating and antifreeze leaks are not uncommon here;
  • After 200,000 km of run, oil consumption may already appear and the timing chain may stretch.
