I'm new to the forum and new to the Hyundai experience. I just recently purchased my 2013 i30 Style CRDi 1.6 and am currently getting to grips with what's under the hood. In the first pic you'll see 4 numbered items that I need help with in identifying. I think I know what these bits are but I want to be sure. Numbers 1-3 are for sure sensors but what sensors and 4, is it PCV valve or a breather tube?

Hi, I bought one of these the other day www.ebay.co.uk/itm/161350382019 when my key blade snapped off and lost the pin. It includes the spring. Swapped the bits inside from existing fob and put them into the new shell. A word of warning - the original fob was VERY hard to break open, seemed to be superglued together! Theres a video here which makes it look easy.

So I finally bought a new trailer on the weekend, a nice deep-side heavy duty 7x4 with 5 leaf springs. I attached the tow bar to the i30, and having never used a square couple tow hitch had the old guy at the trailer shop check it for me (got the thumbs up). Took it nice and easy, of course, but the i30 gearing suddenly made a lot of sense. The low first gear is great for hill starts with a load on the trailer, and I noticed that I was typically using a gear lower than normal. I am a believer in not using excessive throttle when towing, but rather to gently lope along using gears sensibly, and if that means not driving at the speed limit all the time, that's ok. I didn't see much 6th gear use.

Hello all you awesome i30 fans and please bid me a fair welcome to your tribe!
I have been using this website for years to get answers about my i30, but alas, now I need your help for an answer I cannot find.
I recently put some 18" Rims on my beloved vehicle and have been hunting around for the correct tyre size. However, while the front tyres needed to be a specific size so that the speedo wasnít out by too much, Iím trying to go slightly wider on the rear wheels so that I can get a more common tyre size thatís much cheaper.
The wheels came off a Lancer Ralliart and had 215/45 R18 tyres on it, which made my speedo out by 3.6% too slow, causing risk to speeding fines. ...

Hello, I have just bought a 2013 i30 Style Nav diesel which comes with electric power steering.
This is the first car I have had with this feature, as my previous cars have had normal power steering but have noticed with the i30 that, when travelling slowly (up to 15mph) in heavy traffic, if you turn the steering wheel slightly, it feels a bit jerky. However, once you drive at normal speeds, it feels smooth again. Is this normal?

Hi. Just new to the forum to see if anyone can offer any info or advice. My daughter has a 2007 Hyundai i30 auto. The car has been running like a dream (perfect nick when she bought it and serviced regularly). It has 114,000kms on the clock. She had to start making a few distance trips to the coast which was when the problem started. She described it as the gearbox would not go into gear, it held revs and eventually stopped. Result: Had to be towed. Mechanic couldn't establish the problem. She made another coast trip and same deal. I had suggested if it happened again to disconnect the battery and see if would start. It did. Since then, have not made any more coast trips and only runs around town. She took it to the Hyundai dealer. Muc...

I'll attempt to update this from time to time and want to share my thoughts so far.
I live in a town on the outskirts of Auckland City and needed to update my ageing Toyota Starlet Glanza 1.3 which had served me well for the last 9 years. My drive to work is about 37 km each way, mostly motorway driving with a demanding steep gradient running about 4-5 Km's at the end. I found my Glanza a drag to drive and a bit small for the type of driving I was doing so after a few promotions decided I was going to treat myself to a new wagon.
I started researching a replacement economical car in the Yaris, Swift, Mazda 2 price range and came to the conclusion the Swift was best value. I went down to our local de...
