Disadvantages of the EGG engine

  • The narrow oil channels of the engines of this series quickly become slagged. This turns into oil starvation of the motor, wear of the liners, and so on;
  • Compression drops are also common due to exhaust valve deposits;
  • Throttle and EGR valve contamination leads to floating idle;
  • Another weak point of the unit are regular leaks of oil and antifreeze.
