Disadvantages of the SIDA engine
- In the early years of production, owners often encountered phase regulator failures;
- Otherwise, it is a reliable unit, except that it is demanding on fuel quality;
- From bad gasoline, candles quickly fail, as well as an expensive gas pump;
- Some versions of Duratec do not have grooves in the piston and bend the valve with a broken belt;
- Oil is also regularly leaking from the crankshaft seals and from under the valve cover.
