Disadvantages of the HUWA engine
- The weak point of this motor are the valves and couplings of the phase control system;
- Also, many are faced with lubricant consumption due to clogged crankcase ventilation;
- For the same reason, oil often presses through the front camshaft oil seals;
- Carefully monitor the condition of the timing belt, as when it breaks, the valve bends;
- On a run of 150 – 200 thousand km, the fuel pump and turbine often require attention.
