Disadvantages of the VW CAWB engine
- Most of the complaints here are about the timing chain, often it stretches already to 100,000 km;
- In second place is a large consumption of lubricant due to the fault of a clogged oil separator;
- There were cases of destruction of pistons from detonation, replacing them with forged ones helps;
- Due to soot on the intake valves, the engine speed at idle may begin to float;
- Another reason for the unstable operation of the motor is the wedge of the dampers in the intake;
- Ignition coils have a low resource, especially if you rarely change candles.
