Disadvantages of the FYJA engine

  • The power units of this series are quite reliable, but require high-quality gasoline;
  • From low-quality fuel, the life of candles is reduced up to 10,000 km of run;
  • Exactly for the same reason, an expensive gasoline pump often fails;
  • Duratec motors in European versions always bend valves when the timing belt breaks;
  • There are no hydraulic lifters and every 100,000 km you need to adjust the valve clearance.
