Disadvantages of the SsangYong G20DF engine

  • The weak point of this power unit is the unreliable timing chain drive;
  • Here the stars wear out, the tensioner fails, and sometimes the chain itself breaks;
  • On a run of 150,000 km, oil pump chain breaks are regularly encountered;
  • Quite a lot of trouble is caused by grease leaks and poor performance of the oil separator;
  • Also, owners often complain about poor starting in the winter.
