Disadvantages of the Peugeot EB2M engine

  • For engines of the first years, a recall campaign was carried out in connection with the axial play of the crankshaft.
  • Also, on engines with a mileage of over 100 thousand km, oil consumption is often.
  • But the most troublesome thing is the timing belt located in the oil bath.
  • It wears out pretty quickly, and its wear products clog the oil channels.
  • That is why the oil pump in this power unit does not last a particularly long time.
