Problems & Issues
 :mad: I'm still having trouble with my 2017 i30 SR DCT. The idle is still "lumpy' and the hesitation during acceleration appears to be getting worse. When this first started happening I took it to my dealer and they told me it was the throttle body causing the problem. They cleaned it and the car ran well for a couple of days. I took it back about a week later and told them it had started to do the same thing again. I took a "technician" on a drive and he told me that it was the DCT and that they could reprogram it. But he said the gearbox would start to do what it is currently doing again as it "learns" my driving style. To me this is a load of B......t. I was also told by one of the dealer staff that they would try a arrange for me to te...

Recently I have started to hear a faint moaning sound when releasing the clutch after changing gears. It happens only in the phase where I am still taking my foot off the pedal, then it goes away. Sound is so faint I dont think I can get it recorded unless I abuse the clutch.
So far car has done 68000 kms and rides fine and have no problems changing gears, fuel economy is the same as before.

Am I approaching an expensive repair / new clutch? Or any tips to keep rolling as long as possible?

I'm wanting to add some kind of additive to my manual gearbox. The oil has been recently changed by my mechanic which has made somewhat of a difference but it does still seem a little 'crunchy', not to much that it grinds but it isn't 'smooth'.

Was thinking of adding: :link: Smooth Shift Manual Gearbox and Diff Treatment - Nulon Products Australia

Is this easy to add? Can I do it via the engine bay? I've had a look at the workshop guides but it isn't clear where the gearbox filler plug is in an 09 FD SX Petrol.

Spark Plug
I have a new coil pack for my 09 SX Petrol. Iím wondering what tools would be ideal to remove the nuts holding it in.

Iíve tried using a socket wrench and a normal wrench but the nuts donít budge.  Itís in a bit of an awkward position as well.

Have been down a few dead ends with this one.

Engine Cranks OK. Key symbol (in Car) on Dash illuminates so key is verified, Symbol goes off when Cranking.

Randomly the car will not start  as defined above. There are no obd2 codes present...

Pulled the dash apart looking for loose wires, none found.

When Battery is disconnected for an hour sometimes longer is required. Occasionally this trick does not work straight away and has to be left even longer. I suspect that pulsing the battery terminals by connecting and disconnecting quickly a few times gets it to start on the following attempt.

Any ideas.

Still trying to get a workshop manual or a circuit diagram for...

Wont Start
This problem started 2 days ago. I have checked the fuel pressure with my scantool and when the engine is running it's spot on target but drops quiet quickly to zero when you turn the engine off. Is this normal or is there a fuel leak from the regulator or injector. I intend to test the glow plugs in 2 days time along with a service.

Rear Struts
2012 1.6 crdi.

Hi again..
Now I've owned the i30 for 2 weeks I thought I'd ask about its strange rear end handling.

I noticed  the day I bought it that when you hit the slight bump on a bend the back end hops and skips around like a spring lamb.
Well it's not that bad but the rear end definitely moves around a bit. 
I thought it was maybe either the 4 brand new unbranded tyres on 15" steel rims or maybe just the way the i30 suspension is set up.
Well I put 17" alloys on a few days ago and apart from being slightly firmer, the hopping sensation is identical.

I drive for a living and I've driven 100s of cars new and old, but I've never felt anything like this.  I wouldn't  say it feels...

Hi all,

Have a 2010 Diesel i30. Have read a number of posts over a number of years and some of them fit with some of my issue but not completely so thought I would ask! Note I am not a technical person so really looking at options to tell my mechanic who couldn't find a problem after a drive and a clutch inspection.

The issue - Inconsistently across a drive for the last few days the gear changes alter between normal and a bit stiff. It appears worse early in a drive, but sometimes its fine at the start and gets worse later. The stiffness I can live with, but the main issue is that occasionally, I can't change from 1 to 2. To fix, I simply pull over to a complete stop and then it works fine. I haven't yet tried going in...

i30 in the news
Just got an email from Hyundai introducing the new i30 SEDAN.

Apparently they've finally scrapped the Elantra name.

Due here later this year.

My drivers side high beam suddenly does not work. I replaced the bulb but it still doesn't work. The passenger side high beam works and regular driving lights work on both sides. Is there a fuse or relay i should check or has anyone Else experienced the same problem and have a solution?
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated?
