Disadvantages of the TU3A engine

  • The greatest number of problems are delivered by failures of components of the ignition system;
  • The cause of floating engine speeds is usually a dirty throttle and idle speed control glitches;
  • Monitor the condition of the belt, it often wears out before the scheduled 90,000 km;
  • Do not allow the motor to overheat, the valve stem seals instantly tan in it;
  • Every 70 – 90 thousand kilometers, the thermal clearances of the valves here require adjustment.
