Disadvantages of the Saab B207R engine
- This is a completely reliable engine, but the chain resource here is rather modest;
- Even before 200,000 km of run, the timing chain and balancer shafts are often extended;
- The turbocharger serves well, but the bypass valve often fails;
- A lot of trouble in this motor is associated with a short-lived valve of the crankcase ventilation system;
- Weaknesses include the control unit, fuel pump, electric throttle and crankshaft position sensor.
