Disadvantages of the B5252S engine
- This unit does not have a phase regulator and an electronic choke and is therefore reliable.
- The most famous problem is the oil burner due to clogged crankcase ventilation.
- It is important to monitor the condition of the timing belt, since when it breaks, the valves usually bend.
- Quite often, the rear crankshaft oil seal and the oil pump gasket are leaking here.
- The engine mounts, water pump and fuel pump also have a modest resource here.
