Disadvantages of the 4E-FTE engine
- The reliability of this turbo engine is not bad if you follow its cooling system;
- From frequent overheating, seals crack and flow here, pierces the cylinder head gasket;
- Due to contamination of the throttle or idle speed controller channel, idle speed often floats;
- Already after 100,000 km, oil scraper rings may lie down and lubricant consumption will appear;
- There are no hydraulic lifters here and valve clearances require periodic adjustment.
