Disadvantages of the Daewoo F10CV engine

  • This motor is not a hassle, but its life is often limited to 220,000 km;
  • A significant drop in compression in the cylinders is a sign of an imminent overhaul;
  • The timing belt has a modest resource of 40 thousand km, and when it breaks, the valves always bend;
  • The unit does not like bad fuel, candles and nozzles quickly fail from it;
  • Since there are no hydraulic lifters here, the valves will have to be adjusted every 50,000 km.
