- Lubrication is also lost due to constant leaks and especially from under the valve covers.
- The reason for floating engine speeds is usually contamination of the throttle or fuel pump grid.
- It is advisable to change the timing belt every 60 thousand km, or if it breaks, the valves will bend.
- A lot of trouble delivers capricious electrician and unreliable attachments.
