Disadvantages of the Mazda FP 1.8l engine
- This is a reliable engine, but he really does not like the use of low-quality oils;
- From cheap lubrication, hydraulic lifters here can knock already by 50-70 thousand km;
- In addition, units of this series are prone to oil consumption even at low mileage;
- According to the regulations, the timing belt is changed every 60,000 km, but when it breaks, the valves do not bend;
- The remaining engine problems are most often associated with the vagaries of the ignition system.
