Disadvantages of the VW AVU engine
- This reliable and resourceful engine rarely worries and only at high mileage.
- The most famous problem is the oil burner, but the rings lie after 200,000 km.
- A clogged fuel pump or a cracked coil is often to blame for unstable operation.
- Update the timing belt every 90 thousand km, as with its breakage, the valves always bend.
- Also, the engines of this series often crack the exhaust manifold in the region of 3-4 cylinders.
