Disadvantages of the Honda F22B engine

  • The motor is primarily known for regular oil and coolant leaks.
  • After 100 – 150 thousand kilometers, rings usually lie down and the oil burn begins.
  • A dirty idle valve or EGR valve often leads to unstable engine operation.
  • Monitor the condition of the timing belt, its resource is 90,000 km, and when it breaks, the valve bends.
  • Since hydraulic compensators are not provided, the valves are adjusted every 40,000 km.
