Disadvantages of the B4164S2 engine
- The main engine problems are related to leaks due to clogged crankcase ventilation;
- Oil presses through the camshaft seals on the timing belt, which reduces its life;
- Also, a broken ribbed belt can get into the timing and this is fatal for the engine;
- In this version of the motor, a not very reliable phase regulator appeared on the intake shaft;
- The weak points of the unit include the pump and the rotor of the camshaft position sensor.
