Kangaroo start
I have a diesel hyundai auto which surged when I started the engine.
I had it inspected by my dealer and was found to have a faulty brake sleeve which will be replaced but my worry is that the transmission fluid was dirty brown.
After reading about all the problems with the i30 transmissions I am worried that the transmission is on the way out and I might be up for a new transmission just after my warranty expires in June 2017.
As reported by my dealer: Internal malfunction in transmission
                                         Checked engine component,Valve body, Checked fault codes,-
                                         Upgrade- none, , Carry out adaptive values retested-same light only

I'm putting my car in for its 1st full service on Thursday, it's the i30 1.6 CRDI Blue Drive. What will a 20000 mile service include and how long should it take roughly. The garage have told me it will be approximately 1.5 hours which seems quite quick to me. Thanks guys.

      I have four year old Hyundai i30 diesel. Misses was driving on M5 and all of a sudden steering wheel was locked. EPS and ESP lights were on.Luckily she was driving slowly cause of heavy traffic. After couple of restarts it worked and we booked service with Hyundai campbelltown. They advised that issue was it lost calibration and it is fixed now. This morning
It failed again and we can't even move the steering wheel. EPS and ESP lights on again. Called Hyundai road assistance and they have towed it back to the service center. Can you please advise as this is common problem with 2010 i30 cw diesel and please advise as what steps I should take. Probably complain to the head office. Misses is pretty scared to touch the car ...

Paintwork (shit)
Just wondered what you folks are using to safely remove tree sap from paintwork?

The substance in question is translucent, sticky and thick. When it lands on glass, I have always removed it with nail polish remover which is mainly made from denatured alcohol & MEK. However, I am not going to put that stuff near paintwork without knowing it's definitely safe to do so.

It's strange but I've never really had issues with sap before so never needed to consider the best way to remove it... it's almost as if it is attracted to the i30 :rofl:

Had my i30 for about 1000 miles now.

I like the drive, althought its a bit noisey, and the gadgets.

I dont like the terrible visibility at the A pillar.

As a result I'm seriously considering selling.

Shame that.

Some of us have a nightmare problem with 1.6 CRDI engine and DTC P1186 (check engine light on) that hyundai or kia services hardly solving. :spitty: :fum:

I had a problem with random long cranking (about 7 seconds) after sitting over night or after 40-50min after engine was turned off.

Another fault was random limited revs to 2850rpm, with no check engine light on, no DTC codes stored, parameters in live data was all good.

After some time limited RPMs with DTC P1186 - Fuel/Rail system pressure - Too Low. Permanent.

Here is a video how i solved this problems.  :cool:

Hi guys, so this is my first post on this forum. I really need help.
The original stereo, although it may be half good, it isn't good enough. I want to install a double DIN Pioneer head unit, however, I can't seem to find the correct dash piece to suit.
I went to a car sound place but they have to speak to Hyundai directly. I believe that will be a very costly exercise.
My question is, where should I search for a reasonably priced double din adaption dash piece to suit my 2011 Hyundai i30 (1.6L manual, basic model). Preferably in AUS, I'm impatient. ;)
Also any wiring tips would be helpful, I've always worked on older car stereo systems I just don't know what I am going to find back there.
Thanks in advance, any ...

I just noticed when I went to pick some stuff from my car that the lights did not flash when I locked the car with remote key fob. They flashed in the morning when I came to work, but now few hours later they did not work any more. They will flash when I open the locks but not when closing them. Any ideas?
