Disadvantages of the EDDB engine

  • Zetec series engines are reliable, but do not tolerate bad gasoline;
  • Spark plugs are usually sold first, sometimes they are only enough for 10 thousand km;
  • Often, an expensive fuel pump fails from low-quality fuel;
  • Monitor the condition of the timing belt, in the European version, when the valve bends when it breaks;
  • The aluminum pan of the motor is located quite low and is very easy to dent.
