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.
