Disadvantages of the Kia S6D engine
- By design, the unit is reliable and most often it is let down by the quality of components;
- The timing belt can break even up to 50 thousand kilometers, and when it breaks, the valves bend;
- From cheap grease, the oil pump valve often wedges and hydraulic lifters knock;
- After 200,000 km, an oil burn usually begins due to the wear of rings or caps;
- The ignition system delivers a lot of trouble, candles, coils and wiring do not last much.
