Disadvantages of the Mazda L813 engine
- The main complaints are related to floating turnover, which is difficult to get rid of.
- The firmware of the control unit helps, cleaning or modification of the throttle assembly.
- Weaknesses also include the thermostat, pump, alternator and right motor support.
- Often oil oozes from under the valve cover and goes straight into the spark plug wells.
- Since there are no hydraulic lifters, every 100,000 km it is necessary to adjust the valves.
