Disadvantages of the YS4E engine

  • The only global engine problem is the valve seats falling into the cylinders;
  • That is why the most demanded node for this motor is the new cylinder head;
  • Otherwise, the engine is very reliable, even if the timing belt breaks, the valve does not bend;
  • Most owner complaints are related to noisy operation and expensive parts;
  • Also, many drivers have experienced oil or coolant leaks.
