Disadvantages of the PNBA engine
- This is a very weak motor for the Mondeo and it is often heavily loaded, which affects the resource;
- From bad fuel, components of the ignition system quickly fail here;
- Check the condition of the timing belt more often or if it breaks in the engine, the valves will bend;
- The sources of lubricant leakage here are the valve cover and the rear crankshaft oil seal;
- Weaknesses also include: phase regulators, a gasoline pump and almost all attachments.
