Good morning (afternoon for most) everyone
As I understand it, the Gamma engine which is in my car (1.6 petrol) does not have hydraulic valve lash adjusters but a normal bucket and shim type setup.
Since Hyundai decided to throw away my service schedule booklet when I took it in for the waterpump replacement, I cannot see when the valve clearance needs to be checked and/or adjusted.
Currently I am sitting on around 172K km and I am not sure whether it would have been checked around the 90'000 or 105'000km service (our service intervals are 15'000km) or if it is something I should see to in the near future?
I hear a faint tapping sound on startup when cold which is normal as it takes a while for th...

When I connect my phone to my 2012 i30 Stereo via bluetooth I can use bluetooth audio to listen to music on my phone but I cannot use the seek buttons on the steering wheel to skip tracks. The buttons on the stereo itself don't skip tracks either.
Originally I just accepted that this was the way things were until I drove a Kia Ceed hire car. I assume that the underpinnings of the two cars are essentially the same but I was able to skip tracks via bluetooth in the Ceed.
I have also read elsewhere on the forums that people are skipping tracks via bluetooth just fine.

Hello everybody, I found this site after I had a problem with my wife’s i30 driver’s door not opening. I know this has been discussed before however it was a year ago and I thought it might be an idea to resurrect it. Mainly to expose what I consider rip off. The problem was a broken cable at the inside handle, I discovered that this is not an unusual fault. Some people have suggested it was a ‘Recall Fault’, not according to my local dealer however. No real problem I thought get a new cable and fit it. This is where the trouble started, I was informed by two different dealerships that the cable was not listed as a separate part and I would have to buy the entire lock mechanism at nearly £200 incl VAT. I then found out from a fr...

So my 5 year old and up until now reasonably healthy i30 CRDi seems to have become possessed by some kind of Carriage Demon
It started about 10 weeks ago with the occasional throttle cut, which is easily remedied by taking my foot off the throttle and reapplying. This happened at first once every few days, but has now become once per km!! However, that's not all. In the last few weeks, the CC will suddenly drop off and not allow me to reapply it until the car has been switched off and restarted. The ESP OFF light will now come on on nearly every journey, (I did have this problem before but was resolved by my local Hyundai Dealer in Geraldton when they replaced some brake assembly switch, but hasn't come back unti...

hi folks, I have a similar issue in that the turbo on my i30 packed it in last week at about 108000kms and just inside the 5 years. Warranty claim not accepted due to lack of evidence of servicing in earlier years. I have had it 3 years out of the 5 since it was built. Is turbo failure a common or usual problem does naybody know? Any thoughts or advice would be very welcome please.

Hi All, I own a Hyundai i30 2013 model (40,000 kms). I noticed this that my aircon is not working efficiently. When I set it to 'LO' with full fan speed, it works normally for a while. But after the aircon has been on for 30 minutes or so, very little air comes out of the vents. I can hear the fan at full speed but there is no air flow. I checked all the vents. Nothing.
It doesn't matter whether I recirculate air of bring in fresh air. Does the same thing. This is particularly a problem during summer days.
The only solution I found is turning AC/FAN off and back on in 10-15 minutes.
I reported this to the dealer during the last service but they advised that there is no problem and t...

Hello, I was rely wondering wth is with this car... I have 2011 i30 1,6 90PS .. And I'm sure today that 6th gear is completly usless in terms of MPG/economy,..
I feel like it has a lot of resistence when in 6th gear, the fuel consuption is like +0.5L/100km minumum!. Like when driving downhill the fuel consuption doen't lower,,... it's still at 4l/100 . (1.5L/100km in 5th gear)
Drove in 5th today on highway at 110km/h and i had like 4.6,5L ... If I had in 6th, I would get 5.6, 6L/100km ..
So if anybody does know what's wrong, I would be grateful..

Hi all, Long time reader and love the forum. I am having an issue at the moment with my 2008 (MY09) Diesel i30 5 spd manual where it seems that if i accelerate out of an intersection with a good amount of throttle position, the zircon cuts out and blows warm air. It behaves as advertised whenever i am not accelerating sufficiently. Any thoughts? I know that some cars with smaller engines do that so that all power is available for the engine, but can't find any info elsewhere. I also know my land cruiser has a coolant temp switch that cuts off the zircon above a certain temp, but my i30 seems to only do it at extended throttle pedal positions? And i never noticed it last summer!! Thanks in advance; Ben
