Disadvantages of the VW CHHB engine

  • In this generation of engines, the oil burner problem is not acute, but there are still many complaints;
  • Only replacing pistons with forged ones will help to completely get rid of lubricant consumption;
  • Much more breakdowns are associated with a drop in oil pump performance;
  • Reduced lubrication pressure leads to rapid wear of camshafts and liners;
  • Every 50,000 km it is required to adapt the turbine pressure regulator;
  • Up to 100,000 km, the pump, phase regulators can fail and the timing chain can stretch.
