Oil Leak
Hi All,

I got a new 2019 i30 PD Active auto a few months ago, and recently, when I was looking under the car at the rear where i think the fuel tank is, I saw some kind of spray on stuff on the tank.  Not sure what this is?  Initially, I thought it was road mud/dirt, but closer look it actually stuck on the surface. 
Does anyone knows what this is ? and what purpose does it serves?

With less than 46,000 miles my i30 needed a new clutch. I put this down to the car being a hire car for first 10,000 miles of its life.

During the process of removing the clutch it became apparent there was an other issue. There was engine oil all over the place. Crankshaft oil seal needed replacing.

After new seal and clutch fitted every thing was sweet.......for about 150 miles. Then the clutch began to slip and judder. In 3rd gear, when driving, slight pressure on clutch pedal causes judder. Only reducing speed stops the judder. Also in 2nd giving it some gas the clutch slips for about 10-20 seconds (revs rise, foot off gas, revs fall and the slipping can be felt to stop as friction plate gets grip).

So I've had the n-line some weeks now. I've lost track.  for those who don't know I used to have a FD 1.6 CRDi and now I have an n-line 1.4 GDI.

This thread is just random observations, some comparisons, and perhaps something about rubber. These things are probably all in other people's threads.

The 1.4 GDI is a quite a schizophrenic engine. It has some low down torque, just enough to stop me missing the CRDi. Its perfectly possible to change gear early and drive on the torque. Then there is the middle rev-range, really a place not to find yourself if you are wanting to move. But then at 4.5K+ on the rev counter the engine is most definitely feeling like a petrol and ready to push you a long quite quickly.And of course...

I'm looking at removing my swirl control actuator to see if I can service the item and clear the error code once re-installed.

I'm somewhat stumped at how this is removed at the swirl flap end?

Here's the actuator assembly:

You can see the pivot point on the actuator in the middle of this image (white nylon washer) and then the connecting rod that goes down towards the swirl flaps at the manifold.

At the end of the connecting rod it looks like there's a split pin and a 10mm nut but it does not look like an easy access scenario and I'm concerned that ...

I'm not going to go over old ground as I've said plenty on here about the "features and benefits" of my 2017 i30 PD SR.

Now that she's traded after doing around 66,500 kilometres in 26 and a half months I just thought I'd post a few words.

Basically all I want to say is the SR/N-Line is a brilliant car. Aside from a few QC issues (like warm start problems) which I fortunately didn't have, it definitely punches well above its weight.

It always amazed me how well it filled the shoes of the Holden Calais V that I had previously (which was also awesome)

I think the biggest strength of the SR/N-Line is the overall balance of features/ value/ performance/ Economy and user friendliness.

So we have a 2010 i30 1.6 Diesel.
When the clutch is pressed then it makes a squeaking noise.
It does this when the engine is off.
The clutch feels ok and the bite point doesn’t feel like it’s moved.
When drive, once the clutch is down, the squeak is gone.
The pressure is taken off the clutch, it doesn’t squeak.
The squeak is louder on the outside of the car, than when sat inside; i.e it’s coming from the engine bay.

Had a read of this....
:link: Clutch squeak mystery
...and wandered off fairly content that it’s a squeak on the release lever and not a big deal.

In the mea...
