Disadvantages of the Peugeot ES9A engine

  • Most engine problems are associated with the use of low-quality gasoline or oil;
  • From bad fuel, candles quickly deteriorate, and after them the ignition coils;
  • For the same reason, lambda probes fail, of which there are four;
  • Non-original grease often tends to ooze from gaskets and seals;
  • Many delay the costly replacement of the timing belt, which is fraught with a major overhaul.
