SkyActiv Long-Term Reliability??
Since the new SkyActive engines are direct injection, does anyone have any idea if they will potentially experience the same issues that turbo GDI engines do? By that I mean the gunk that the PCV valve allows into the engine. I've heard of turbo GDI engines experiencing all kinds of issue from loss of power to engine damage from the build-up on the valves that doesn't get "washed" away by fuel since it's injected directly into the cylinder. I know many people with turbo GDI engines install a catch can ahead of the PCV valve and the amount of crap that gets caught is a little concerning. I may be in the market for a new 3 hatch and am trying to determine if there may be future issues with the SkyActive setup.
