Disadvantages of the Mitsubishi 3A91 engine
- In the early years there were problems with floating speeds, but everyone was treated with firmware;
- And so the main problems of this power unit are associated only with lubricant consumption;
- Thin piston rings lie already by 100,000 km of run and an oil burner appears;
- After 150,000 km, the timing chain often needs to be replaced and most often with a phase regulator;
- There are no hydraulic lifters here, so do not forget about adjusting valve clearances.
