Disadvantages of the Peugeot EB2 engine
- For engines of the first years, a recall campaign was carried out due to axial play of the crankshaft.
- Also on specialized forums you can find many complaints about the oil burner after 100,000 km of run.
- But the main problem here is the timing belt located in the oil bath.
- It can wear out quickly, and oil channels are clogged with its wear products.
- For the same reason, the oil pump in this engine does not last very long.
