Disadvantages of the Ford J4D engine
- First of all, these units are famous for the low resource of the cylinder-piston group;
- Usually, overhaul is required on runs of 150 – 200 thousand km due to oil consumption;
- There are no hydraulic lifters here, and once every 30,000 km, valve adjustment is necessary;
- If you ignore the sound of valves for a long time, then the camshaft will quickly become unusable;
- Also, this motor often fails due to the failure of one or another sensor.
