Disadvantages of the VW BBY engine
- Most complaints on the network are related to traction dips or floating revs.
- The reason usually lies in the throttle assembly, the EGR valve, or air leaks.
- Monitor the condition of the timing belts: the resource is modest, and when it breaks, the valves bend.
- Contamination of the oil receiver often leads to a drop in lubricant pressure in the engine.
- The crankcase ventilation is often clogged and leaks from under the valve cover occur.
