Disadvantages of the 1JZ-FSE engine

  • Most concerned about the high pressure fuel pump and direct injection injectors;
  • Also, this motor is afraid of frost, humidity and tends to fill candles;
  • The water pump and the VVT-i phase regulator give up pretty quickly;
  • Ignition coils often burn, which causes tripping of the power unit;
  • The cause of floating speeds is a dirty throttle and idle speed controller glitches.
