Disadvantages of the 2VZ-FE engine
- Often in these engines, the cylinder head cracked as a result of a gasket breakdown.
- Often the culprit of overheating was an unreliable fan hydraulic drive.
- There is increased wear on the crankshaft journals and connecting rod bearings.
- Spare parts for this engine are very difficult to find and they are very expensive.
- Also in the minuses we will add a high fuel consumption and a progressive oil burner.
