Disadvantages of the Kia A5D engine
- This is a reliable, but not the most resourceful unit and most of its problems are from wear;
- The timing belt serves very little, sometimes less than 50,000 km, and when it breaks, the valves bend;
- Closer to 200,000 km, oil consumption often appears due to wear of rings and caps;
- From cheap grease, the oil pump pressure relief valve often jams here;
- The weak points of the engine also include the ignition system: candles, coils and their wiring.
