Check Engine Light
Hi all, first time posting.

i30 Wagon, GD, 1.6ltr auto.

Starts fine, accelerates fine until it hits 3000rpm and cuts fuel (not fully), then acceleration is sluggish.

Initially thought it was missing so replaced plugs and ignition coils.

Does this in auto, or sitting in neutral or or manual shift of auto (tried to see if it was anything to do with box)

Thoughts? Is this limp mode? No engine light, buying a fault code reader tomorrow.

Assuming something is telling the ECU to cut fuel?

Oil
My first post...

My 2018  2.0 Petrol I 30 is using around 1ltr of oil every 1800klms. It has done 150,000 k's.  I bought it second hand with18,000 k's on the clock.  It started using oil early on and it has gradually got worse.  I have tried all the things suggested by the local brains trust including, changing oil brands and grades ,more frequent servicing (every 8000k's) and engine flushes. None of them made a difference.

Hyundai said it was was not a warranty issue when it was under warranty.  They suggest engine removal, strip down and a measure is needed to determine the problem.  Hyundai ( head office and the local dealer) will not acknowledge it is known problem despite there being a class action of other people...

Kangaroo start
Hi everyone, please bear with me...this is my first post.

My 2012 CRDi blue drive active has taken to bunny hopping when temperatures get to around 18°C (& above).
It starts up ok in all weathers and doesn't do this in cold/cool weather, just when the mercury starts to rise.
There's no particular speed at which it gets worse/better, and causes a bit of drag on the acceleration/drive, but then seems to settle down after a few minutes (maybe 5?)
It's as if fuel is struggling to get through, but I can't understand this as I thought fuel got thinner in warmer weather and therefore flows easier (please correct me if I'm wrong...and if this is indeed the problem I have 🙈).
It's frustrating, but also concerning as I...

Vibration
Hi All,

I am a very recent i30 owner, and as such, very new to this forum.

I already love my i30, but it has one issue im trying to resolve. Under acceleration, between 40 and 50 mph there is quite a pronounced wobble in the car. Feels like it's wobbling side to side. I dont feel it through the steering wheel really, more like just the car is wobbling side to side slightly.

Been doing lots of reading up on it and based on that I am coming to the conclusion that it might be a worn inner CV joint on a drive shaft. I have been under the car and recorded a video of me manipulating the OSF inner CV joint side of the drive shaft, there is very slight play with an audible click sound when moving it back and forward...

Problems & Issues
Hello
Does anyone know how to enable Auto hold to be alway On. And Drive mode to stay on Normal after restarting the car.

Drive mode is keep resetting to ECO when turn off and turn back on again.

I just bought an i30 DCT Premium Hybrid and I am still trying to figure it out. I checked the manual and says that those two should remain with their last setting and not reset.

Gearbox
I'm at my wits end. I have a 2017 i30 PD, dual clutch transmission hatchback, and last year I had to have the entire transmission replaced after only having driven 30,000km (I am the only owner and don't drive it like an idiot). The issue was that the orange lights on the dashboard would light up, and when I put the car into reverse or drive, it would not move. Sometimes it revved, other times it did not.

The cost - which was covered by Hyundai, thankfully - was around $8000. I had to pay for labour ($800)  :blubber:

Last week, I turn my car on, I have a dashboard full of orange lights and the telltale not moving when I put it into reverse. It's undriveable because it's not safe, and I've also lost power while I've bee...

Wipers
Hi All,

When I wash the front windscreen the rear wipers come on at the same time, as the washer motor feeds both front and rear windows (but reverses the impeller direction to feed the rear) the rear window always runs the wiper with the window dry.

When I wash the rear window only the front wipers don't operate. (the rear washer doesn't work but that's a separate issue)

Is there something I have actuated that I can turn off or is this some kind of weird fault I'm seeing?

Tail Gate
Hi,
Here's a tip for those who face the issue of the rubber of the Liftgate/Trunk/Hatch Release/Opening Switch deteriorating or crumbling. Don't leave it for too long or the internal switch mechanism will fall out and the following fix will be moot. I was lucky, that happened to me but I was able to find it on my garage floor!

I cut out a piece of bicycle inner tube (you can use any thin and flexible rubber) and glued it into place. It's out of sight so I didn't worry too much about how it looked. Anyone could do a prettier job.  :)

I reckon I saved a few quid.

Good luck.

Cheers,
S

Spark Plug
Hi,
My baby has clocked over 140k kms and feels slightly rough. I've picked up a 4-pack of NGK SILZKR7B11. They are all uniformly factory gapped at 0.98mm. A google search gives me gaps between 0.9 and 1.1 in various sites.

Can anyone enlighten me on the factory recommended gap, please? It's the Trophy model (Australia) if that makes a difference.

Cheers,
S

Door Locking
Hi everyone, long time since I last posted. I thought I would share my current problem to see if anyone else has had similar.

I have the same door locking electronics issue as per my last post :link: i30 Door locking/unlocking by itself

History - i30 auto 2013 hatch. Keyless entry. Drivers side door outside button stopped working ages ago. was quoted too much just to take off the door to have a look so have been just using the keyfob. Passenger door outside button works ok.

For quite a while now when I approach my locked car on the drivers side, the door locks start opening and closing continuously by themselves without me ...
