Disadvantages of the Mazda F6 1.6l engine
- Due to an incorrectly tuned carburetor, a car can consume a lot of fuel.
- Also, many problems of this engine are associated with failures in the ignition system.
- After 200,000 km of run, an oil burner is very common due to stuck rings.
- The timing belt resource is approximately 60 thousand km, but when it breaks, the valves do not bend.
- There are no hydraulic lifters here and every 100,000 km you will have to adjust the valves.
