Disadvantages of the VW CAWA engine
- The weak point of this motor is the timing chain, it is already stretched to 100,000 km;
- Also, the oil separator clogs very quickly here, which leads to lubricant consumption;
- It is not uncommon for pistons to crack from detonation, but forged alternatives exist;
- The culprit of floating engine speeds is usually carbon deposits on the intake valves;
- They also become overgrown with soot, and then the swirl flaps of the intake manifold jam;
- If you pull for a long time with the replacement of candles, you will have to spend money on ignition coils
