Engine Duratec HE 2.0 Ti VCT under the hood

Engine Ford Duratec HE 2.0 Ti VCT

The Ford Duratec HE 2.0l 150hp engine is the same 1.8l design, but with larger cylinders (87.5mm versus 83mm). The LF model was developed by the Japanese company Mazda, the MZR series, and was used by Ford in the framework of cooperation between the two companies. Compared to 1.8 liters, the two-liter counterpart looks preferable from all sides: the flow rate is the same, more elastic, more powerful, it runs quieter, it has no shortage of floating speed, like 1.8.

Frequent problems

  • the direct fuel injection system is very reliable here;
  • accelerated carbon build-up on intake valves;
  • crumbs of degrading catalyst can scratch cylinder walls;
  • over 200,000 km are usually pulled out and require replacement of the timing chain;
  • there are no hydraulic lifters and valves need to be adjusted every 100,000 km.
