Oil Leak
Hi everyone. I own a 2010 1.4 i30 and have noticed the oil depleting over the past few months. Looking into and under the engine bay there looks to be oil in lots of spots unless I have mistaken it for something else?

What part of the car is that in picture 8 behind the engine? There has been a lot of heat coming from it and when driving in hot weather or when its raining I can see steam or smoke through the windshield. I also get a smell through the air con of what could be oil burning.

Pleased to say that on recent good range trips of over 300 miles plus, Trip computer is reporting over 55 miles a gallon... I consider that really good as all trips had 3 people, fishing gear and a/c on all the time.... plus cruise control on as much as possible.
Well pleased!

Oil Pump
Hello all, I have just installed a catch can on my 2014 diesel i30 hatch.
Any interest on the excellent forum about catch cans and there purpose and usefulness?

I can provide more detail and long term results if people are keen.

 have developed a bad turbo whistle and lost a bit of top end power so spent yesterday with my mate and we did the following;

disconnect intercooler pipe and air filter box

attached a baked bean can where the filter box would usually be

held our hand over the intercooler pipe and inflated the system to around 15 psi to check for leaks in pipes - no issues

We then went around the exhaust gate valve which was being actuated quite frequently --> chasing the pipes towards the front of the engine we found the air vacuum / boost pressure valve and when we disconnected one of the hoses or clamped the hose the turbo whistle stopped

I have ordered a replacement part online but it seems you can'...

Android Auto
Hi all, just wondering any folks have had issues with their Auto link Premium when they encounter a "network unstable" issue appearing on their app?
Phone reception is fine (have tried 2 different phones) without any luck.
I've had Auto link premium for about 4 weeks (since I got my car from the dealer) and after the 1st "complimentary" service, it seems to have stopped working.

Roof Rack

I'm picking up a 2017 i30 on Saturday. I'm looking at roof bars for it. Does anyone know who makes them for Hyundai? I'm asking because non-dealer is usually cheaper but the Hyundai ones aren't a bad price. If they're made by a Thule or Atera or someone like that they might be worth it.

Does anyone know?

Hi All,

So I was driving to work the day before yesterday and I was only about 4 klicks from home when I got a tyre pressure warning from the front passenger-side tyre saying it was low pressure. However, it was indicating 30 psi. At the time, all the others were at 31.

As luck would have it, there was a servo not far so I pulled in to check the pressure. Unfortunately it was one of those that doesn't have a gauge, only a setting for how much pressure you want. So I set it to 31 and connected the hose to the tyre. It hissed for about 1 second and then beeped to indicate that it had reached the pressure.

Off I went and sure enough the pressure in that tyre was now reading 31 along with all the others. The low...

Brake Pads
Hi everyone, I hope you’re all well.

I recently had my i30 in at Hyundai for its MoT test and they told me that the front discs had both worn below the minimum thickness - both at 22.4mm. Thing is my car has only done 38000 miles and I hardly use the brakes. I’ve had the car since 6000 miles and I drive very conservatively - changing down the gears and rolling to a stop etc. Sometimes I do a trip and the brakes are still cold when I finish... leading me to think that nothing is rubbing, along with the fact they’ve both worn the same which I wouldn’t expect really if something was rubbing.

Has anyone else had any concerns with the discs wearing quickly? On my SO’s Kia Rio we’ve just changed the rear discs for the first ...

I have had so many problems with my handbrake on my I30 that I decided to fit new rear calipers myself and stripped down the old one to see how it works. -
i have put a brief video on You tube for anyone interested in how it works.
BTW if your handbrake does stick in an emergency you can release it with a 12mm spanner   :lol:

Be kind.
