Disadvantages of the VW CJZB engine
- The main problems are associated with the oil burner, especially for the early versions of the engine.
- There are also a lot of complaints about accelerated carbon formation on the intake valves.
- Next comes the often sour and jamming rod of the turbine wastegate actuator.
- After 100 thousand km, an expensive pump with two thermostats often already leaks.
- The timing belt is designed for a mileage of approximately 120,000 km, and when it breaks, the valves bend.
