  • This engine is also very afraid of the cold, it is afraid of moisture and it likes to pour candles;
  • The reliability of the water pump and phase regulator type VVT-i is rather low;
  • The reason for the tripling of the power unit is usually in one of the ignition coils;
  • The engine speed floats mainly due to idle speed controller glitches and dirt on the throttle.
