Disadvantages of the SsangYong G32D engine
- This is a very reliable motor, but it is extremely important to monitor its temperature;
- A viscous coupling is distinguished by a modest resource, and its breakdown immediately leads to overheating;
- From overheating, gaskets are destroyed here and grease begins to ooze just from everywhere;
- Most often, gaskets leak: U-shaped, cylinder heads and heat exchangers;
- Also, poor-quality lubricant clogs oil nozzles and scoring appears on the pistons of cylinders 5-6.
