Disadvantages of the MEBA engine

  • This motor does not like bad fuel, candles and their coils quickly deteriorate from it;
  • After that, the fuel filter is usually clogged and the fuel pump fails;
  • The main cause of engine overheating is most often an unreliable pump;
  • Due to contamination of the crankcase ventilation, grease begins to ooze from all the seals;
  • Low-quality oil significantly reduces the life of hydraulic tensioners and hydraulic compensators.
