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.
