Disadvantages of the Ford BRF engine
- This is a reliable and very resourceful engine and most of its problems are due to old age.
- The bulk of complaints are related to frequent leaks of lubricant on gaskets and seals.
- Hydraulic compensators do not tolerate cheap oils and can start knocking at 150-200 thousand km.
- Over a mileage of 200 – 250 thousand km, wear of the valve guides is often encountered.
- The chain between the crankshaft and camshaft lasts a long time and changes closer to 300,000 km.
