Disadvantages of the Honda D14A engine

  • The main problems you will be delivered by failures in the operation of the components of the ignition system;
  • The reason for floating engine speeds is most often the contamination of the throttle or idle valve;
  • Once every 40,000 km, you need to adjust the valves, every 90,000 km, change the timing belt;
  • After 150,000 km, piston rings usually already lie down and an oil burner appears.
