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.
