The 1.8-liter Geely JLE-4G18TD engine was produced at the Chinese plant from 2015 to 2019 and was installed on the pre-styling version of the Borui sedan, which was delivered to some markets as the Emgrand GT. This turbo unit is of our own design, but in design it is similar to the VW EA888 engine.

Disadvantages of the Geely JLE-4G18TD engine
- This turbine unit is not widespread and the statistics of its breakdowns is small.
- In the first year of production, dealers frequently replaced camshaft sensors under warranty.
- The turbine itself is reliable, but a number of cases of bypass valve failure have been described.
- Catalyst, spark plugs and lambda probes absolutely do not tolerate bad fuel.
- It is also worth noting the shortage of some spare parts and a minimum of donors on the secondary market.
