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.
