Disadvantages of the FA24 engine

  • This power unit has just appeared and there is still little information about its breakdowns;
  • Like all direct injection engines, this one is very demanding on fuel quality;
  • Strictly follow the oil recommendations or the phase shifters will not last long;
  • The units of this series are afraid of overheating, monitor the condition of the cooling system;
  • On specialized forums they already write about floating idle speeds, we are waiting for a new firmware.
