BLACK CLOUD

Herald Sun - Motoring - - Ask Smithy -

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.
