Disadvantages of the FUJA/FUJB engine

  • The engine does not tolerate bad fuel, candles and their coils quickly break here;
  • From low-quality gasoline, the fuel pump filter becomes clogged and it fails;
  • According to the regulations, the timing belt serves 120,000 km, but often it gives up much faster;
  • Also, the thermostat and pillows of the power unit have a limited resource here;
  • Every 100,000 km, valve adjustment is required, since there are no hydraulic lifters.
