Disadvantages of the Hyundai G4KL engine

  • So far, most of the complaints on the specialized forums are related to the failure of the high pressure fuel pump.
  • And if your engine oil level rises sharply, then this pump is usually to blame.
  • Like any direct injection unit, it suffers from carbon deposits on the intake valves.
  • There are no hydraulic lifters here and every 100,000 km the valve clearance needs to be adjusted.
