Hi all, hope you’re safe and well, I need your help please, every time I start my i30 (from cold meaning engine being cold not driven for a while) I get issues where my revs jumps for like 30 seconds and if I give a little Rev everything gets back to normal? Did anyone had any similar issues with their diesels?

Hello, fellow i30 owners,

After a long time lurking, I decided to share my issue with you guys.
I saw quite a few topics on this forum, discussing oil level rise and failed DPF regenerations. Unfortunately, the same has happened to me. I noticed that the oil level in my car has had risen quite a lot. And it had a very liquid texture. I went to the official Hyundai service, where they told me that my DPF is in bad condition and that they will try with the forced regeneration. As they also told me, the soot level was 20 of something, which they wouldn'#039t specify. It fell to 9 after the forced regeneration. We agreed that I should come back next week, for an oil change. In the meantime, I should observe if the oil level will ri...

Took my 2015 1.6 diesel to the dealer for an '#039essentials'#039 service this week. Overall I thought it pretty good value considering they change the engine oil &amp filter, air filter, fuel filter, pollen filter, brake fluid and coolant. Not sure why they change the engine coolant considering they did it only 18 months ago at the last service.

Anyhow, I checked the oil level next day and found it to be above the Full mark on the dipstick, which is about the 3rd or 4th time this has happened. I know the handbook states 5.3 litres, but my opinion is that 5 litres is the right amount, based on the dozen oil changes I'#039ve done on this engine. I could have taken it back and asked the dealer to draw off the excess, but that'#039s 2 hours out o...

My old 2011 diesel has now covered 224,000 miles and it is becoming increasingly difficult to engage the gears without crunching, especially reverse. The clutch has never been replaced, but I do change the gearbox oil at 90,000 mile intervals. I'#039ve bled the clutch to no avail. I suspect the clutch is worn out, though it doesn'#039t slip at all. I'#039d like to check the easy things first, does anyone know what the stroke of the slave cylinder is supposed to be? I could check if it'#039s delivering enough travel on the release lever to dis-engage the clutch.

Just thinking about it, if the clutch plate is worn, shouldn'#039t that make it more likely that the clutch disengages when pressing the pedal down?

It may also be that the g...

Morning All,

I have the above hyundai and it has been going well

Last November, it threw a check engine light, Hyundai dealership tracked it to a plug had come unclipped(?????) from the EGR harness

Ok no worries

Anyways drove it out of the workshop and the check engine light came on again nbsp :'#039( :'#039( :'#039(

This time they changed out the EGR on warranty

My son drove the car from then till May/June when my daughter got her licence ( My son has no interest under the bonnet!!!!! )

We then lifted the bonnet (as I was showing my daughter what to check) to find the coolant not in the header/expansion tank and also it took coolant in the radiator

Took it to the ...

Bright Idea
My compressor coil broke down some time ago. Just a lot of sweaty driving, but otherwise did not affect the cars performance. I got a service kit, but unfortunately they send wrong part. Kit had a 4pk pulley as the car has 5pk belt system. I thought I might be able to change just the coil, if that would be same size. Yesterday the engine started make nasty sounds. I noticed that the AC compressor bearing broke down. Little bit of measuring with a fishing line and I drove to a parts store to get shorter belt. I placed the shorter belt so that it not going to the ac pulley at all. Seemed to work. At least I was able to drive home with it.

I'#039ve used 1810 and 1815 belts previously with ac. Now I have 1645 belt. Just a tip, if someon...

Wont Start
Hi all, I'#039m hoping I can get some help/ advice. I have seen quite a few post about rough idle/ flickering lights / starting issues with their i30 Sr'#039s. but no one mentioning if they have gotten the issue solved.

im starting a new thread so hopefully ill get more responses. but yeah just wanting to know how many people have been effected and how many people have managed to get it fixed?

my super fun journey so far...

2017 PD SR with only 36000km on it

noticed flickering lights and the the idle was abnormally rough, so on my next service I mentioned it and the dealer said "quotbook it in again as we need a full day to look at the transmission and please try get footage of the flickering"quot

Door Locking
A few months ago, my GD  Premium started having this weird issue where the car would not unlock by pressing the button in the handle.

I thought it was the remote battery, so I got a new one, but the issue remained.
sometimes it would unlock, then relock.
one time it went crazy and kept locking/unlocking, so I'm now unlocking it old school via the remote only.

Anyone has any tips on what this might be?

PS: It does this with any key, on any door.

Windscreen Washer
When the rear washer on my 2015 car stopped working, even though I could hear the pump working, I suspected the check valve was faulty. Unlike the FD where the check valve is concealed under the roof lining, the GD has the valve conveniently located where the hose crosses over the hinge line at the tailgate. All that is required is to pull the hoses off the valve. The end of the valve has a yellow insert, I pulled this out by pushing a round needle file into the bore and pulled it out. Inside is a spring, a piston, and a rubber seal which locates onto the end of the piston. There seems very little to go wrong, but it can stick and stop the water getting through. I re-fitted the valve body to the hoses without any of the internals and the wa...

Hi all,

I'#039m disapointed with no possibility of windows movement when engine is off. There is only short time period (less than 1 minute after switch off - but it stops immediately if any doors are open in this time - I really don'#039t understand why it is so - for me it is insane) while they'#039re still operational. I want to extend this operability - ideally while all time, while is car unlocked or at least extend the time of power on to about 30min and remove the reset when doors are open.. i.e. I'#039m waiting in parking place waiting for a wife nbsp :P and I want to open or close windows while engine is off... I'#039ve found schematic attached below, so the goal is set power RH and LH relay on while car is not locked. I don'#039t know those...
