Disadvantages of the ASDA engine

  • Due to the low power, this motor is twisted to high revs, which affects the resource;
  • From low-quality gasoline, candles quickly fail here, followed by coils;
  • The fuel pump also does not like bad fuel;
  • Versions of the Duratec engine for the European market with a broken timing belt bend the valve;
  • Since there are no hydraulic lifters, valve clearances need to be adjusted periodically.
