Disadvantages of the Saab B207E engine
- This is a very reliable motor and its main problem is the low life of the chains;
- By about 200,000 km, you have to change the timing chain and the balance shaft chain;
- The turbine here serves quite well, but its bypass valve often fails;
- A short-lived crankcase ventilation valve delivers a lot of problems;
- Weaknesses include an electric throttle, a gasoline pump, a control unit and a crankshaft position sensor.
