Disadvantages of the Mazda F2 2.2l engine

  • For motors with a carburetor, you will need a good specialist, they are difficult to tune;
  • Injection versions are more reliable, owners complain only about ignition system failures;
  • At high mileage, an oil burner is often found due to the occurrence of piston rings;
  • The timing belt resource is about 60,000 km, but when it breaks, the valves do not bend here;
  • The use of low-quality oil will quickly affect the hydraulic lifters, they will knock.
