Disadvantages of the Mitsubishi 3B21T engine
- This power unit is quite reliable for a turbo engine, but its consumption is too high;
- The main thing is to monitor the cooling system; in case of overheating, it immediately leads the head of the block;
- Due to hardened o-rings, grease often pours into candle wells;
- Closer to 150,000 km, the turbine or timing chain may already require attention;
- Since there are no hydraulic lifters, the valves need to be adjusted every 100,000 km.
