Question type: General

Is the inline 5 a reliable engine?

1 Answer


I've had no reliability problems with the motor in 10 years, 2005 ZQ8, always starts, runs, never overheats. I do use 93 octane and replaced the plugs and mass air sensor when I first got it (bought used with 4k miles on it) because the engine would bog when doing hard acceleration and reaching higher rpm.
