Disadvantages of the HR15DE engine

  • The engine is considered quite reliable and gives the owners a few problems;
  • Once every 100,000 km you will have to adjust the valve clearances by selecting tappets;
  • By about 150,000 km, the timing chain stretches and starts to rattle strongly;
  • Closer to 200,000 km, oil scraper rings usually lie and a complete overhaul is requested;
  • Most often the alternator belt whistles under the hood, after tightening the sound disappears.
