Disadvantages of the XU10J4R engine

  • The engine does not tolerate cheap oil, hydraulic lifters are the first to suffer;
  • The culprit of floating engine speeds is often the idle speed controller;
  • Bad fuel quickly destroys the spark plugs, followed by the ignition coils;
  • The timing belt often cracks much earlier than the prescribed 120,000 km of run;
  • Owners often complain about grease leaks from oil seals and a small oil burner;
  • The shortcoming is the constantly cracking plastic intake manifold;
  • In severe frost, the engine runs unstably, plus the crankcase ventilation freezes over.
