So we have a 2010 i30 1.6 Diesel.
When the clutch is pressed then it makes a squeaking noise.
It does this when the engine is off.
The clutch feels ok and the bite point doesnít feel like itís moved.
When drive, once the clutch is down, the squeak is gone.
The pressure is taken off the clutch, it doesnít squeak.
The squeak is louder on the outside of the car, than when sat inside; i.e itís coming from the engine bay.

Had a read of this....

...and wandered off fairly content that itís a squeak on the release lever and not a big deal.

Check Engine Light
Hi everyone, im a noob, so go easy for my first question.
my check engine light has come on and off and on again, I have talked to my mechanic and he says the code is the catalytic converter, he reset it and if it comes back on take it to the dealer ,because its still under warranty ( for 1 more month)
it just turned off again.
 ok here is the decider
the petrol prices were high at the time so I splashed 10Lt of E10 (engine light came on)
went back to 98 premium ( engine ight went off eventually)
Also in the Hyundai hand book it says im not allowed to use any ethanol or methanol based fuels ( which can void warranty)

Does anyone have an idea if Hyundai will fix it under warranty if the engine light ...

Belt failure
I've noticed while researching some problems with my i30 CRDi 1.6 (build date Sep 2008) that some people are suffering early serpentine belt failure, and I think I have correctly traced the cause, at least in my case, to a missing pin from the belt tensioner.  I wonder if this has affected other people without them realising it.

To explain I need to go back in time a bit - for the period 2009 when I bought the car, until the serpentine belt was replaced by a mechanic in 2017, there were no major problems with the car.  So in 2017, with 161,000km on the odometer, I was in far north Queensland in Cooktown and decided to get the car checked over by a mechanic.

The mechanic said the serpentine belt needed to be re...

New to the forum.
I have a 2013 i30 diesel and I think the handbrake cable has become too stretched to operate the rear calipers effectively. I am wondering how to replace the cables and how difficult it would be. Also on a slightly related note I can't find any info on how to remove the centre console around the handbrake to get better access to the cables. Also in case there is something I've missed, is there anything 'special' that needs doing to 'reset' the handbrake when new rear calipers have been fitted as the car is not being held by the handbrake on a slope at the moment. Thanks.

Regarding 2011 i30.
I usually listen to music from Spotify by connecting my iPhone through the USB, but it quite often glitches and suddenly changes to the radio, or the system turns off, or the volume turns up to 100, or the song starts skipping. It is usually triggered by driving over a bump and it seems to be happening more and more frequently.
Does anyone know what this problem could be and what is the cheapest way to fix it?
Thank you

Wont Start
My daughter recently purchased a used i30.
She says that at times (not often) it is hard to start and lacks power for a while and then comes good. She says that there does not seem to be a pattern to this problem and it doesn't happen often.
She took it to a mechanic (NOT a Hyundai workshop) and when she explained the problem he told her (my daughter's words) that he thinks it is a problem with the fuel rail and/or fuel pressure regulator and that it would cost about $500 to fix. I am not sure if she should pay out that sort of money unless she is assured that his diagnosis is correct. I know that there are many sensors in the engine such as the MAP, throttle position etc which could cause this problem.

Has anyone had t...

EGR Valve
Hi everyone.

First of all, accept my apologies for any grammar/spelling errors. English is not my first language.

I have a 2013 1.4 CRDi 16V 90hp Hyundai. I have used it 60% urban / 40% highway. We have a mandatory service check here for all cars, periodicity depends on how old the car is.

I did not pass it because of gas emissions.

Truth to be told, I have not taken care of my cars until some months ago when I began learning and tinkering some staff by myself (oil change, filters replacement, etc). So I was not surprised at all.

I used a fuel additive that (in theory) cleans accumulated carbon a bit and drove high on rpms for a week and I passed at the second try. However, I think th...

Spark Plug
Hi all,

I'm getting ready for a flash tune on my N Line in the next week or so and wanted to upgrade to colder plugs beforehand.

Can anyone tell me if they've done this on their N Line or SR and if so what's the model number of the plugs you've uses.
