Disadvantages of the Saab B205E engine
- Turbo engines of this series suffer from constant oil leaks, especially at the joints;
- Hydraulic lifters do not differ in endurance and can knock up to 150,000 km;
- On the same run, the oil pump is already decently worn out, which is dangerous for liners;
- Oil scraper rings lie at about 200,000 km and oil consumption appears;
- Lightweight pistons do not tolerate serious forcing and can simply burn out;
- Another standard procedure is to get rid of rattling balancers;
- The weak points of the engine also include a turbine, an ignition cassette and an electric throttle.
