Disadvantages of the Honda F23A engine

  • Most often, car owners with this engine complain about oil consumption after 100,000 km.
  • In second place are complaints about regular oil and coolant leaks.
  • The cause of tripping and floating engine speeds is usually a dirty idle valve and EGR.
  • The timing belt serves approximately 90,000 km and if you miss a replacement, it will bend the valves.
  • Due to the lack of hydraulic lifters, the valves need to be adjusted every 40,000 km.
