Disadvantages of the Toyota 22R-E engine
- Malfunctions in the operation of the vane-type mass fuel flow sensor lead to a sharp increase in fuel consumption;
- A lot of problems are caused by the outdated ignition system and especially the distributor;
- Even before 150,000 km, the timing chain can stretch and start to make a lot of noise;
- And so it is a very reliable engine with a huge resource of up to half a million km;
- Every 100,000 km, valve adjustment is required, there are no hydraulic lifters here.
