Disadvantages of the КА24Е engine

  • Most often, owners complain about very high fuel consumption or oil consumption;
  • The valves have to be periodically adjusted, since there are no hydraulic lifters here;
  • The engine pan is easily wrinkled from impact, which is fraught with blocking of the oil receiver;
  • Closer to 250,000 km, it is often already necessary to replace the timing chain or its tensioner;
  • The power unit does not like cheap oil, with it it cokes very quickly.
