Disadvantages of the VW 2E engine
- The engine is considered one of the most reliable in its class and rarely worries;
- The reason for floating engine speeds is most often a dirty throttle or idle speed controller;
- Also, failures in the ignition system often occur: the distributor or its wires;
- From bad oil, hydraulic lifters can knock already by 100 – 150 thousand km;
- On long runs, piston rings usually lie down and oil burn begins.
