Disadvantages of the VW AER engine
- This power unit is generally reliable, but regularly worries about trifles.
- Most failures are associated with the ignition system: candles, coil and high-voltage wires.
- The timing belt is designed for about 90 thousand km, and when it breaks, the valves always bend.
- Camshaft position sensor and antifreeze temperature sensor often fail.
- The crankcase ventilation system freezes in frost and squeezes oil through the dipstick.
