Disadvantages of the Honda D15B engine

  • These engines are very reliable, but often begin to consume oil after 150,000 km;
  • Up to 100 thousand km may require replacement: thermostat, pump or crankshaft pulley;
  • Often the exhaust manifold bursts here, and welding does not help him for a long time;
  • The culprit of floating revolutions is most often contamination of the throttle or idle valve;
  • Valves require adjustment every 40,000 km, and the timing belt lasts about 90,000 km.
