Disadvantages of the A14XER engine

  • Motors of this series often annoy with noise, whistling and clicking, but this is not a breakdown;
  • Oil leaks often occur, especially from under the valve cover or pressure sensor;
  • In second place in terms of lubricant leaks is the outdated crankcase ventilation system;
  • Malfunctions in the operation of electric fans often lead to engine overheating;
  • The resource is less than usual here: thermostat, pump, ignition module and candles.
