Disadvantages of the VW CJSA engine
- The most serious engine failures are associated with a drop in oil pressure in the system;
- The main reasons lie in the bearing strainers and the new oil pump;
- Not a very high resource here has a timing chain, as well as a phase control system;
- The cooling system often fails: the thermostat is buggy, the pump or valve N488 is leaking;
- Approximately every 50,000 km it is necessary to adapt the turbine pressure regulator.
