Risk
The product poses a risk of injuries because in the valve operating system of the engine, which contains multiple valves in each engine cylinder, there is a possibility that the strength of the valve spring may degrade, causing the spring to break. If one of the springs in the engine breaks, an abnormal noise and rough engine performance will be noticed. In the worst case, the engine could fail and stop suddenly while the vehicle is in motion.
