Disadvantages of the VW BCB engine
- Floating engine speed usually causes contamination of the throttle or EGR valve.
- Often there are leaks in the cooling system, pipes and a thermostat are leaking here.
- Replacing timing belts is very expensive, and when it breaks, the valves always bend.
- Ignition coils, lambda probes and a coolant temperature sensor are also famous for their low reliability.
