Disadvantages of the 2ZR-FE engine
- Most often, car owners with such an engine complain about a progressive oil burner;
- Many are still worried about extraneous noises and knocks during the operation of the power unit;
- The pump resource rarely exceeds 50,000 km, and after 150,000 km the timing chain stretches;
- The reason for the floating engine speed is carbon deposits in the intake and on the throttle;
- Oil leaks often occur, most often from the filter and from under the timing chain cover.

hey so I currently own a 2zr fae, I’ve tried to do my research on the 2zr fe but there’s not really a website with specs like fitment of engine parts like manifolds and headers, I’ve been trying to find headers for the FAE but I think since its new there’s really no info…
