Disadvantages of the SHDA/SHDB engine

  • Duratec series engines are reliable but require good fuel;
  • Spark plugs deteriorate from bad gasoline, sometimes they last less than 10,000 km;
  • For the same reason, an expensive fuel pump can quickly fail here;
  • In the European version of Duratec engines, when the timing belt breaks, the valve always bends;
  • Hydraulic compensators are not provided and the valves need to be adjusted periodically.
