We bought a new Hyundai i30 in September and have had an intermittent problem when starting the car ever since. The car runs extremely rich for 20-30 seconds, to the point black smoke billows from the exhaust and the engine is only running on two or three cylinders. The dealer has been unable to find the fault, despite changing the injectors and fitting the car with a recording device. The dealer has moved it on to Hyundai — which says the dealer needed to fix it. I can’t see how progress can be made without an inspection and an attempt to do something.
Allan Gibson, email Don’t you hate it when the dealer and maker duckshove it back and forth? Insist on the dealer calling in Hyundai to help sort out the problem.
