Disadvantages of the SEBA engine

  • Very often there is a consumption of lubricant due to the occurrence of oil scraper rings;
  • In second place are regularly jamming dampers for changing the geometry of the intake;
  • From bad gasoline, the fuel pump and fuel pressure regulator fail here;
  • On runs of 200 – 250 thousand km, the timing chain and phase regulator often require replacement;
  • Once every 100,000 km, an expensive valve clearance adjustment procedure awaits you.
