Disadvantages of the Honda F20B engine

  • Most often, car owners with this engine complain about oil consumption.
  • In second place here are regular leaks of lubricant or coolant.
  • The reason for tripping and floating revolutions is the contamination of the idle valve or the EGR valve.
  • The reasons for the inhibited reaction to the gas pedal are electrical failures.
  • Due to the lack of hydraulic lifters, the valves need to be adjusted every 40,000 km.
