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.
