Disadvantages of the CG10DE engine
- The most famous problem with internal combustion engines is that their timing chains stretch and rattle;
- In second place in popularity are floating speeds due to throttle contamination;
- In third place is an unreliable thermostat, which can suddenly start acting weird;
- We also note the quickly drying gaskets and seals, which is fraught with leaks;
- The motor often troit due to moisture, which then easily seeps into the candle wells.
