A car with a replaced motor isnt worth squat to re-sell thats the problem.

Where did that come from? The $4k mob  :undecided: or Facebook  :head_butt:?

A new motor will have no affect on a 2012 model.

You can pick up a low ks motor from a wrecker for $1.8K - $2K, maybe less.

I share tw's  :crazy1: :crazy1: horror.

And PS, Sorry for your plight, it is a unique problem, but we have given our " time and patience " to help you. And I am involved in all the above facets of the industry so Im not some motor mouth.

@bradleyc123  Mate, as an independent observer, all Im trying to do is to get you to do is some BASIC  techo reading, understand the situation,then think laterally about the economics that this mechanic is proposing.

 :workitout: It dont work.

Hi, been following your dramas.
$4k , they must be re-building the entire f-ing engine.
Slow down , have a think.
Your being told a 2012 with an engine swap isn't worth shit.
If you were to sell it once it was going you'll NEVER get back your $4k anyway.
We just sold our 9/2016 GD Active X with 38k km for $13400 to Pickles.
They had a 6/2015 Active X with 21k km for $15000.
Sold ours to Pickles as they offeref more than if we traded it for new $45,000.
Have a look at the private prices on carsales or similiar, go with the cheapest option.

Thats what I mean, show me a 2012 vehicle with a replaced engine that isnt selling for a rock bottom price.

I would never buy a car so young with a non standard engine, it screams of major concerns.

Guys, i do really appreciate the effort and input.
I just dont know anyone in Victoria, i dont have a mechanical/technical bone in my body, and all ive got to rely on is "some guys on the internet told me"

It'd be great if a 7 yr old car had no major problems, but this isnt the case, so either way im pretty shitted off with the bad luck, and with the Hyundai.

Yeah I'd be shattered myself.
Some things are easier for others to do.
There's a fair bit of stuff I have a crack at, and  do not have the desired outcome, and still have to pay people to do. Sometimes I have a win too  :happydance:.
I get where you're coming from, and I'm sure that you're honest with your abilities.  My head says "i can do that" , but my body says"f-ing what were you thinking?, take this pain as a reminder that you can't "
All the best, safe fun driving .  :drinks:

I know this is flogging a dead horse  but I'll put this up anyway just to put some context of potential costs.

This is ex Korea OEM delivered

Both CVVT  gears $113 USD each
Timing chain $67 USD
Tensioner  $39

all up with duty I estimate some change from $700 AUD delivered. If they're talking replacing the actual camshaft as well then that's not showing in Korean market.

A single CVVT unit I 'd say around $230 delivered

There's obviously other items that will be needed like gaskets or even the chain guides  , that's another $15 USD in total for both + freight

Maybe oil control valves, another $80 USD

Say a $1000 in parts, $3000  left in the equation.

But I appreciate easy all said and done but a lot of people are at the mercy of whatever is quoted.

And you'd have to wait 2-3 weeks for bits to turn up.

Sorry im confused, did they have non standard engines?

Also probably flogging the horse, but in case someone else gets the run around;

The replacement engine will be standard. Has to be!

Im not sure who coined this "non standard" phrase.

Is a motor with $4k of work and parts, any less 'non standard' than a Gem recond motor ?

Anyway, the engine number is changed on rego papers, who would know when selling it.?

Hi all,

Thought I would touch base, it's been probably 2-3 months since this subject lit up...

So I ended up replacing the engine after all, and was supplied a wrecker engine - the price was okay by me, but still pricey by this forums standards.

Regardless, I have just traded the car and dropped a deposit on a nice new 2019, PD3, N Line DCT.

So looks like ill be staying in the i30 family.

Cheers :)

Thanks for coming back with the update. Hope you have more luck with the PD.

Unfortunately, the reason for the tapping sound was never conclusively proven or resolved.

Cheers G.

 :wts: Glad you were prepared to give the i30 another chance. Just unlucky with the last one. We've had 4, I still believe that they are one of the most reliable cars on the market.
