Hi All,

I have a 2014 Hyundai i30 GD2 active auto australian model. Car drives very well and no issues when driving.

However, the car intermittently, and very rarely makes a very grinding electrical sound just before it starts to crank. then once it cranks over the idle chugs for like 30secs to minute. Then it will sometimes blow a heap of white smoke out the exhaust pipe. the smoke will disappear like the idle chugs and then its back to normal. Below is an exact video of what the idle chugs look and sound like:

The other issue is with the radio dropping out randomly and making fuzzy sound and the only w...

About 2 weeks before the end of my 6 speed manual diesel i30's warranty period I notice that changing gears became difficult. It was always a very smooth and light action but, overnight, it became stiff and hard to engage each gear, including reverse. I checked the clutch master cylinder fluid levels, which were fine, and couldn't see any leaks around the master or slaves cylinders, so decided to get my local Hyundai dealer to have a look . They agreed that it was stiffer than normal to change gears, but like me, couldn't see any external issue. They told me that more likely than not that the clutch was worn and would need replacing, which would cost around the $1300 mark and would take 2 days. As the car was still able to be dri...

Oil Leak
I am looking at changing the engine oil in my Hyundai active blue drive crdi MK2 GD. I cannot find a stockist of Shell Helix Ultra Extra. Can anyone recommend an alternative oil that they have used without any problems.

Thank you

Recently bought my 2014 i30 second hand. Previously owned a 2004 Hyundai Coupe and one thing I was looking forward to was the windscreen not icing up inside the car overnight. Put it down to the age of the car and the seals being slightly worn.
Have just had the first couple of cold nights and guess what, my i30 also freezes up inside overnight.
Does this mean it is a Hyundai design fault or has somebody else had this problem and resolved it?i

Hi, have a 1.4 i30; 4 years old, 30K miles.  At starting off in 1st I get what I assume is severe clutch judder - doesn't happen every time but when it does its bad.  (Stupid question - could this be an engine mount?).   Will be getting it serviced next week at a Hyundai garage; we'll see what they say although I guess this will be "wear" issue rather than fault.   I assume I can get the garage to confirm the location of the fault without spending loads of money.

Copped a large stone chip in the middle of the windscreen that starred to about the size of  my hand. We were away on holidays in Port Macquarie. Called NRMA Autoglass, O'Briens and Novus for a quote.
NRMA quoted $550, but as you have been a member for 38 years discounted to $440.
O'Briens website offered an instant quote, but then wanted to call me back, didn't respond until the next day so not sure of there price.
Novus quoted $290, replaced same day.
Irritated that when NRMA guy called back it was actually the local unnamed installer acting as agent. His price direct was similar to Novus.

Hi all, wondering if you could help with a query about my aerial fitting. I have managed to lose my aerial and need a new one. I've tried several replacements that claim to fit, but none of them do. So, I bit the bullet and paid out for the proper Hyundai part (for i30 2012), as advised by the Hyundai garage. However, this doesn't fit either.

The aerial base has a screw thread coming out of it. Unfortunately so does the aerial, essentially two 'male' components.

Any suggestions which is the right part? If you unscrew the antenna is it a male/female fitting?

My diesel power steering gives the EPS light for a few seconds intermittently every now and again, only immediately after cold start and my having turned the steering wheel to get out of a parking spot. Light goes off and stays off a few seconds later.
In addition there is a knocking when I go over bumps.
There is no recall for my car.

Anyone any ideas, I was thinking battery cos it happens just after cold start and I have turned the wheel straight away.

Problems & Issues
Morning everyone :)

First time post, long time reader. My car has developed an interesting, if not very frustrating problem. Went to turn the engine yesterday evening and all of a sudden ... Nothing. The interior lights flickered, as did the dash lights, radio and air con unit. With the key still turned we could also hear a clicking noise from under the bonnet.

Tried a few more times and still did not work so had to make other plans. Returning to this problem today however and not 100% sure what to try next. My thoughts are this:
1. Could be a dead battery? Would be annoyed if it is as not had any warnings (granted never do I guess). Plus the car also had a VERY long run a day or two prior so would have hoped it ...
