Disadvantages of the Geely MR479QA engine
- By design, this is a very reliable unit, but it is often let down by build quality;
- Sensors, ignition system components and attachments serve relatively little here;
- The timing belt often breaks on a run of less than 50,000 km, but the valves do not bend here;
- Closer to 100,000 km, valve stem seals may wear out and an oil burner will appear;
- Do not forget to adjust the valves, as hydraulic lifters are not provided.
