Disadvantages of the M137 E58 engine

- There are also very unreliable and expensive coil packs for 24 spark plugs.
- Grease from the oil pressure sensor can enter the control unit through the wires.
- A powerful-looking double-row timing chain can stretch up to 200,000 km of run.
- The weak points of this motor include flow meters, a generator and a throttle assembly.
