Disadvantages of the XU5JP engine
- Many owners of cars with this engine complain about unstable operation in cold weather;
- Condensate often freezes in the crankcase ventilation tube and oil drives through the dipstick;
- The vagaries of the idle speed controller lead to floating engine speeds;
- From bad fuel, candles quickly fail, followed by ignition coils;
- Most often, the timing belt cannot pass the 120,000 km laid down by the manufacturer;
- The sources of oil leaks are usually the valve cover and the crankshaft oil seal;
- Since there are no hydraulic lifters here, the valves will have to be adjusted independently.
