Disadvantages of the EGS engine
- The problem of this unit is in narrow oil channels and their rapid slagging;
- Lack of lubrication contributes to accelerated wear of the liners and engine seizure;
- The reason for the floating speed of the internal combustion engine is usually the contamination of the throttle or the USR valve;
- Exhaust valves also suffer from soot, which cease to close tightly;
- Also, there are often leaks of coolant from under the pump gasket.
