Disadvantages of the B4164S engine
- This is a simple and reliable gasoline engine, in this version there is not even a phase regulator.
- The biggest problem is lubricant consumption due to clogged crankcase ventilation.
- The timing belt often runs less than the prescribed 90,000 km, and when it breaks, the valves bend.
- It can also be damaged by the backlash of the water pump and a broken ribbed belt.
- Sometimes the cause of engine failure is a broken camshaft position sensor rotor.
