Another 2017 i30sr starting problem

New Topic Split from :link: 2017 i30sr starting problem


Hi everyone,
I have been following this thread for a few weeks now and thought I better register and add my 2 cents in, for what it's worth.
I have a 2017 i30 SR DCT. For about 6 months now it has been struggling to start when the engine is warm. It's 10000k service was last month, I asked the dealership about this problem and was told they hadn't heard anything from Hyundai. When picking it up I was told the technician had noticed the problem and they offered me a hire car if i left mine for a week while they test it. I held off as i didn't think it would help after reading this thread. Should i send it in?
Thankyou all for your hard work and effort in solving this issue...

Hi Newy - welcome aboard.

Sorry to hear you're also having starting issues with your PD.

I figured your post might be better in a thread of its own - that way we can highlight it on our main portal page and maybe get more exposure :D

Good idea Steve.

Must say i'm impressed with the civil way most of our members have handled this issue. As frustrating and disappointing as it is, ranting and raving doesn't help anyone.

If it were me I'd be tempted to run with the hire car. The more testing that happens the more likely this issue is to get sorted.

Good luck, please keep us posted.  :cool:

Take the loaner, it creates a confirmation of the problem,  that they think requires testing.
Keep us posted.

Wow, now I'm nervous. I take delivery of an i30 SR middle of next week. This isn't the sort of thing I want to hear!

No official figures but many on here are unaffected. I'm guessing 10% chance or less of an issue and they must be getting closer to nailing a permanent fix. So don't stress.  :cool:

Working in IT, and these issues + the "gear select confusion" previously been identified in this forum more likely due software.  I wonder if I should request the Hyundai service to not do any firmware update unless there is an issue :)

Sometime new codes have unintentional flaws in it, case in point - Microsoft windows, constantly providing fixes and patches because their previous updates had some issues :P

I made a complaint on Hyundai Australia Facebook page and they gave me a case number and said they'd be in contact with my service dept etc.
Not sure if that's progress or just the usual reply.

Believe me, its been very difficult to stay cool at times. The change of injectors seems to have resolved my warm start issue. This issue was 1 of 3 that I want Hyundai to resolve. The other two are related to lumpy idling ( which think is a tuning issue) and drivers seat wear (which is a cheap material issue).

You just have to keep up a noise to make sure you are heard.
