Disadvantages of the Jaguar AJ27S engine
- The very first units came with a nikasil coating and were afraid of bad fuel;
- But by the end of 1999, nikasil was replaced with more reliable cast-iron sleeves;
- Another weak point of the motor is the plastic timing chain guides;
- The aluminum engine does not tolerate overheating, keep the radiator clean;
- As luck would have it, the pump is distinguished by low reliability, and pipes often burst.
