Japanese automakers are known for their quality products, which include powertrains. The 3S engine fully belongs to them, as it has proven itself only on the positive side. The appearance of this remarkable motor of the 3S series was noted in the already distant 1986, and its release continued until 2000. ICE 3S is an injection engine with a volume of 2 liters. The weight of the power units of this series strongly depends on the modification of the motors.

- Injection pump failure. The problem is accompanied by the penetration of fuel into the crankcase and high wear of the ShPG. Symptoms: an increase in oil that smells of gasoline, twitching while driving, the engine periodically stalls, uneven stroke, swimming speed. It is required to replace the injection pump.
- Stuck EGR valve. The reason is coking due to poor fuel. As a result, the number of revolutions floats, the engine malfunctions and the car does not run. Requires valve cleaning.
- Speed drop, unit shutdown. It is necessary to clean the throttle valve module as well as the intake manifold. A similar symptomatology is a breakdown of the fuel pump and air filter.
