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.
