Check Engine Light
I have a 2009 i30 cw 2.0L automatic petrol wagon with about 70,000km serviced regularly.

When idling and/or reversing at slow speeds car sounds and feels normal.  When starting to accelerate, if accelerator pedal is pressed slowly car accelerates slowly, quietly & smoothly but if accelerator pressed to accelerate more rapidly: pedal shudders and car accelerates very slowly instead of normally.  Check engine light is now solid when stationary but is either flashing or solid when moving (the light, power issues and shuddering just started today).  Car has no power going up a hill.  Ideas?

Also possibly relevant: over the last few months it has been driving fairly normally but occasionally it has felt like gear changes w...

Hi All and good morning,

First of all, thanks to this great community, I manage to diagnose an issue with my I30 - I had 2 issues that happened
1. The car wouldn't start and with an OBD2 I saw that I had P1690 error
2. The car would start with no revs on the dashboard (I have a HUD which showed revs.. kind funny in that sense)
after reading here several threads, I saw that the issue may occur due to faulty crankshaft location sensor, manage to buy 1 from Korea for less than $30 and install it

He Guys ,

Long time since my last post , i30 still going strong except for recently it has developed a weird oscillation that you feel through the whole car but mostly under medium to heavy acceleration , when coasting it's not there , if i accelerate gently you don't feel it.

It's an oscillation not a vibration , like when your wheel is out of balance but i feel no vibration through the steering wheel , you feel it through the whole car.

It only started about a month ago and it was after i accelerated very hard while turning 90 Deg left from stationary , there was a bit of wheelspin then it did this oscillation for the first time and has been doing it ever since.

I don't believe it is related to...

Im looking at buying a 2011 i30sx 2l petrol manual with only 65,000 kms for 5,000. Good condition, drove well. BUT: passenger side front window will go down but only goes up with a lot of jiggling of the switch (using either driver's side control switch or passenger's).
The other issue is the driver's side rear door lock. The lock still works but makes a buzzing sound.

from lurking your amazing forums i have deduced with no mechanical knowledge that the window is being caused by either the motor inside the regulator wearing out or this: "I opened the panel on the door and pressed the switch. Looked like too much movement on the housing/frame of the motor so i just checked to tighten the bolts/screws and they were a bit loose...

I made mention of this in another post but wanted to separate the topic on its own, if possible, as I really am concerned.

This is for the 6 speed auto transmission in my 1.8L 2012 GD series - 86000kms

This is one of the issues I have noticed recently, prior and after my transmission oil flush and wanted to get some comments.

When I am in “D” mode, there is a (very) slight “clunk” sound that is heard and “felt” when car is coasting in a gear taller than 4th and I need to brake, as the car slows down before stopping completely.

As I start to apply the brake pedal to slow the car down (eg at a give way sign) it downshifts to 3rd just before the complete stop when it will then go into first silently...

Hi all

Not sure if this is posted in the right place but happy to move if need be.

My i30 Nline 1.6T (petrol) is due for its first service soon (1500km) and I have decided to do an oil change. Happy to hear from people who think this is waste.

Oddly enough, the service using their oil is $159, but the service using my own oil is $143. Firstly, is $159 decent for an interim service (oil+oil filter) change plus the little inspection they do at 1500km? It makes no sense to supply my own oil (which I was hoping to do) if the difference is only $16 + cost of own oil. There is only one other Hyundai Dealer in Canberra but I really don’t want to look into that as they were terrible when I visited during the buyin...

We purchased a used i30 (2017 model) in April 2018 direct for a major dealer. The car was one year old with 8k miles. Since we have added 17k in 1 1/2 years so average miles. It appears we have a judder when moving away in first gear and have been advised this may be a clutch issue. The problem is the car was sold with full health check and so we are very upset that after 17k miles we have developed a problem. We are careful drivers combining short and long trips and having only recently changed front tyres at 24k. Our local Hyundai advised us not to spend money (£75) on the investigation fee and go straight to the problem which means removing the gearbox at great expense.

My questions to owners are:
1. Has anyone else exper...

Does anyone have any info on the indicator mechanism on the steering column?

The indicators have stopped self cancelling since the dashboard has been out on my 2009 FD, I wonder if something got knocked during the work.

Do indicator stalks still have a mechanical method of cancelling or is there some new method?

Strangely, I am also getting some rather baffling oversteer on corners, like the EPS is too sensitive, I wonder if that is related !

Any insights would be gladly appreciated !

Hi all,

Excuse the dumb questions... lol

My 2012 GD 1.8L Petrol is now at over 85,000km and by the next service will probably be 90,000km ( I do about 10,000-12,000 km per year). 

1) Given the 6 speed auto is a sealed unit and there is no mention anywhere of a service, should I get it done next time or is this something not needed until way into the 100's?

2) Is it okay to go to a good independent mechanic or would you only recommend an auto transmission specialist?

3) How will I know they have done a full flush (apart from requesting it)?

4) Will I notice a marked difference in driving characteristics after this?

I always appreciate the advice given on here, so i...

Problems & Issues
Hi peeps, my first post and I thought Id share my experience with ya'll.

So, I had a problem with the heater blowing cold and then the windscreen started misting up on a trip back from Wales, got a good whiff of coolant in the cabin also.

Google told me that the heater matrix was probably blocked and leaking, so I took it to the dealer and nearly feinted when they quoted near £1000 for replacement.

Now my i30 is 10 years old and done over 120,000 miles so £1000 is probably near as much as its worth.

So I decided to try and replace it myself - bad mistake !

I managed to get a copy of the workshop manual, which turned out to be pretty useless, bought an aftermarket  heater matrix for £70....
