  • The main thing is to monitor the cleanliness of the radiators, from overheating immediately leads the block head;
  • Engine speed often floats due to contamination of the throttle and idle speed controller;
  • Candles serve very little here, and the insulation of the wires is also quickly destroyed;
  • After 250 thousand km, an overhaul is often already required and there are repair dimensions.
