Disadvantages of the Peugeot EB0 engine

  • For these engines, a recall campaign was carried out due to crankshaft axial play.
  • There are a lot of complaints on specialized forums about oil consumption after 100,000 km of run.
  • But the main problem of the motor is the timing belt located in the oil bath.
  • It wears out very quickly, and its wear products clog oil channels.
  • That is why the oil pump for units of this series does not last a particularly long time.
