hyundai i45/sonata GDI 2.4 engine recall

hyundai i45/sonata GDI 2.4 engine recall

hyundai i45/sonata GDI 2.4 engine recall

does anyone have information on the recall of the GDI engines for dirt and swarf left in the engine from the production we got a recall letter from them and I have been complaining for over two years about noises and other engine related faults I heard that the engineer from Hyundai released all the internal reports and that is what started the recall. In the USA they had it recalled before here in Australia. Any links to the data or other reports would be helpful as even there own training department one year ago before the letter said it was normal as I am a mechanical engineer I know and dirt left in an engine will cause other faults that I am getting eg excess oil consumption/stuck oil-driven VVTI/nosey lifters and such thanks for your time ponder

If you got the recall notice, then what's the problem? Take the car in and let them do what they need to do.

A friend of mine had one of those, and it seized up on the highway before he got a chance to take it in. He got a new engine.

Punctuation not a priority I see. Or maybe emotion is just running high.


Good luck in your quest.

Ebook - Mastering Tolerances for Machined Parts
When making CNC machined parts, mastering tolerances can be challenging. Are general tolerances good enough? When does it make sense to call out for tighter tolerances? Do you need a better understanding of fits, datums, or GD&T? Learn about these topics and more in Xometry's new e-book. Download Now
eBook – How to Choose the Correct Corrosion Testing Method
When designing a metal component, engineers have to consider how susceptible certain alloys are to corrosion in the final product’s operating environment. In a recent study by NACE (National Association of Corrosion Engineers), it was estimated that the direct and indirect costs of corrosion in the United States is approximately 6.2% of the GDP. In 2016, that cost exceeded $1 trillion dollars for the first time. Download Now
