Disadvantages of the TU5JP engine

  • A generally reliable unit often worries about failures of ignition system components;
  • Contamination of the throttle and idle control leads to floating engine speed;
  • Valve stem seals tan from overheating and an impressive oil burn appears;
  • The timing belt may burst before the scheduled 90,000 km, which is fraught with a major overhaul;
  • Do not forget about adjusting the thermal clearances of the valves approximately every 100,000 km.
