Loud engine 2.4.

Post by Reus49 on Sun Dec 08, 2013 5:37 pm

At 1500 miles, out 2.4 has developed a noise at startup. Actually it sounds like a diesel!

Anyway, took it in yesterday and the dealer is contacting Hyundai since they have had to replace 2 or 3 already.

Will keep you guys up as I hear from them.

I will keep an eye out on mine to see if it develops anything. Did they say their dealership had to replace them or Hyundai in general did?

Got instructions from Hyundai to replace the other tow or three. I have an appointment with a Hyundai tech coming down to check mine out.

I heard you are getting a new (reman probably) engine because of this. Could they say what actually went wrong with your engine or did they just say that you get one and they "don't" know whats going on until they take it back to Hyundai?

Dealer here is not to open engine, just send it in.

Do you have an eta on when it should be fixed? My Sonata went down for 20 days when I was awaiting a new engine. That and the many problems that followed after the engine replacement like they forgot to hook up the vacuum hose and my turbo quit working and threw a cel before I got home. Then when I was leaving after that was fixed it went into limp mode. Once that was fixed apparently it then had a coolant leak and needed a new a/c compressor. That's when I threw in the towel lol.

Engine was ordered on a Friday and got a call the following tuesday night that it was delivered. Droped off the car Wednesday night and it was actually ready Thursday but around 18:00 hrs.

So far it has been running great.

BTW - I did ask the mechanic when I picked up the car if they had any idea what happended. Again he stated that they were not allowed to open it up - just crate it and send back!

Yeah that's what I experienced when I asked them when my Sonata's engine blew up. Just ensure that you keep a close eye on anything and everything. I had to take my Sonata back 3 times after the install for dumb crap that failed after the install.

How's the new engine treating you? Mine is doing ok, but in the back of my mind I wonder how long this one will last.

Have you heard anything back from your dealer and if Hounds found out what was wrong with your engine.
