Disadvantages of the E5SA engine

  • This motor is quite voracious, but reliable and has virtually no weak points.
  • On runs over 200,000 km, the timing chain mechanism may require intervention.
  • Periodic cleaning of the idle valve will save you from floating speed.
  • Sources of oil leakage are most often the front and rear crankshaft oil seals.
  • The use of low-quality lubricant often leads to the knock of hydraulic lifters.
