Disadvantages of the TU5JP4 engine

  • A reliable unit as a whole most often worries about electrical glitches.
  • Many people experience sudden twitching or tripping of the engine. Coils are the weakest link in the ignition system.
  • Owners often complain about floating engine idle speeds. The throttle body and idle speed control should be cleaned periodically.
  • The timing belt drive is not very reliable, and when it breaks, the valves bend. Carefully follow the replacement schedule and the condition of the belt.
  • Often under the hood you can hear the loud clatter of hydraulic lifters. Use only engine oil recommended by the manufacturer.
