Wont Start
Hi Folks,

Long time reader, first time poster.

I've recently noticed my 2011 1.6 CRDI taking longer to start under the following conditions:

- The car has remained off for 10+ hours (basically in the morning).
- The colder the temperature the longer the crank before it starts.
- Immediately after the engine starts, I can switch it off and it will start again very quickly (No warm up time!).
- No fault codes are showing from the ECU
- No warning lights show AFTER startup although the battery light does stay on during the crank.
- The crank does not slow down while I'm turning the key.
- Cycling the glow plugs doesn't help.
- The engine runs no problem once started.

My shine red UK specification 2009.5 model year 6 speed 1.6 u2 crdi 5 door hatchback now has 285,888 miles on the odometer which is about 200,000 miles more than average. I bought it new at the very end of 2009 with a delivery mileage of 8.4 and in very nearly 8 years have driven it for 282,503 miles (a brother accounting for the other 3,377 miles). During 43 trips to the European mainland I've clocked up 70,470 miles in France, Belgium, Luxembourg, Germany, Switzerland, Italy, Spain and Andorra.
On the day of acquisition I drove 128 miles before filling the 53 litre tank with 56 litres of diesel. When fueling I try to fill to the brim and then zero the tripmeter. My meticulous records (I'm a qualified accountant) show a consumption of...

Ok, who knows what the go is with the manual i30 clutch adjustments?

I'm working on a CRDi and the pedal has to be buried into the firewall and grabs  as soon as I lift.

It's pretty much to th epoint it's noit diengaging fully, difficult gear changes and reverse gear grind.

Hydraulic system and last time I touched a clutch the adjustment was on a push rod to the pedal,
This has nothing like hat and I'm reading self-adjusting clutch cover?

Does this mean there is no adjustment possible? Clutch is not slipping and appears to be ok.

any tips ?

Air Con
This is not a problem, nor an issue, so I'm obviously posting in the wrong forum, but:
Does anyone else have an i30 PD (MY2018) Diesel with DCT?
Does your engine fan stay on for 50 seconds after turning the engine off, every time
, irrespective of outside temperature, engine temperature, length of trip or recent engine load?
Even just moving a cold car on a frosty morning, just a few meters, in icy conditions?

I imagine there is probably a hard-coded 50-second timer which simply keeps the (radiator?) fan running for those 50 seconds, irresective of anything.
Probably to protect the turbo or similar high-temperature component, which if cooling stopped right away would burn any oil still in ...

Hi Guys,
I have leak coming from oil filter housing. I am suspecting o-ring damaged.
Is it possible to replace it, without having to drain oil?

Hey guys,
Say you did a complete flush of your cooling system and poured new fluid. But then later you find out that you have air in your system, how would you go on about removing that air? Some people say that there is a place near the thermostat were there is a little screw which you unbolt and fill radiator up to the top, then once coolant starts coming out you start the car up and the air gets removed. But we only have coolant reservoir on the i30 2011 (FD)?

Many thanks!
