Disadvantages of the VW CMTA engine
- The engine is free from most of the diseases of the series and is considered reliable;
- The main problems of the motor are associated with the formation of carbon deposits on the intake valves;
- In the crankcase ventilation system, the membrane often fails and requires replacement;
- On runs of more than 200,000 km, timing chains often stretch and begin to rattle;
- The rising oil level and the smell of gasoline under the valve cover hints at a fuel injection pump leak.
