The 2.4-liter Geely JLD-4G24 gasoline engine has been assembled at a factory in China since 2010 and is installed on almost all major models of the concern, such as the Atlas crossover and Emgrand X7. This power unit is essentially a clone of the famous Japanese Toyota 2AZ-FE engine.
Toyota engine clones: JLC-4G15, JLY-4G15, JLC-4G18, JLY-4G18, JLD-4G20, JLD-4G24.

Disadvantages of the Geely JLD-4G24 engine
- This is a fairly reliable engine, but it is often let down by the quality of components;
- The unit is worried mainly about trifles and it does not have any serious problems;
- Lubrication consumption is regularly discussed on specialized forums, but usually it is not very large;
- The use of bad fuel here greatly reduces the life of candles and catalyst;
- There are no hydraulic lifters and valve clearances need to be adjusted every 100 thousand km.
