Disadvantages of the EGF engine
- The main problem of the motor is in narrow oil channels and they quickly become slagged. This leads to oil starvation of the internal combustion engine, wear of liners and hydraulic lifters;
- Compression may also drop here due to carbon deposits on the exhaust valves;
- The reason for floating idle is usually a dirty throttle or EGR;
- The source of antifreeze leakage is most often a leaky pump gasket.
