Disadvantages of the TU1JP engine

  • The main problems are delivered by the ignition system and failures of various sensors;
  • Engine speed often floats due to contamination of the throttle and idle speed controller;
  • From any overheating, valve stem seals are tanned here and oil consumption begins;
  • The timing belt serves no more than 90,000 km, when it breaks, the valves almost always bend;
  • Strong knocks from under the hood hint at an early adjustment of valve clearances.
