Disadvantages of the M15A-FXE engine
- A compression ratio of 14.0 hints at rather high requirements for fuel quality.
- In specialized forums, they only complain about leaks in the EGR liquid cooler.
- This heat exchanger can even crack and antifreeze will fall directly into the engine cylinders.
- After 100,000 km, the EGR valve often becomes clogged with deposits and completely jams.
