Disadvantages of the Mercedes M133 engine

  • For this boost, this is a very reliable turbo engine and there are no special problems with it;
  • And even the Nanoslide coating instead of cast iron sleeves lasts a very long time and does not crumble;
  • But it is worth remembering that such units are very demanding in terms of quality of service;
  • And the direct fuel injection system with piezo injectors does not tolerate low-quality gasoline;
  • On specialized forums there are complaints about oil leaks, low life of ignition coils and timing chains.
