Disadvantages of the EGQ engine
- This motor has very narrow oil channels, which are often slagged;
- Due to the lack of lubrication, liners and hydraulic lifters wear out quickly here;
- Aggressive EGR operation leads to throttle fouling and floating speed;
- Exhaust valves are also covered with soot, which cease to close tightly;
- Another proprietary breakdown is antifreeze leaks from under the pump gasket.
