SOURCE: noisy startup when cold, sounds like valve

Hello onarock844...The Hyundai 2.4 litre and the 3.3 litre are known to have valve train noise. Some sooner than others.
The timing chain tensioners on the 06 and 07 Sonata 3.3 engines built before August 4, 2006 are well known for developing wear that allows them to make a tapping or rattling noise for a short time after a cold start. This noise can be mistaken for a lifter noise, although the actual source is in the front cover area of the engine. Hyundai has released a technical service bulletin on this problem, which describes installation of an updated design timing chain tensioner (part #24410-3C300) to correct this noise issue.
Ask your dealer to refer to Hyundai service bulletin #06-20-002 for information...If this has already been corrected,,,and the noise is coming from the upper engine area and not from the timing chain area, then the valve clearance will need to be adjusted. This is done by disassembling the valve train and installing slightly different size tappets to change clearance.
This is a fairly labor intensive process, so if you are still under factory warranty then you will want to go over the dealer's head and get the Hyundai zone rep involved to get it covered before your warranty coverage expires...
I recommend useing a full synthetic engine oil, i know in a few cases where the noise has stopped when the oil was changed over to synthenic, also a high quality filter is important, such as a purolator.
Good luck...i hope this helps...please rate me a fixya.

SOURCE: engine noisy when starting like type writer sound

they are not adjustable. remove the valve cover and see if any of the rocker arms move up and down more than the other, than remove the rocker arm to see if there is a little bullet looking piece. try to squeeze it with your fingers. if it does than replace it. hope this helps.

SOURCE: Chevrolet captiva 2.0 lt poor mpg captiva has

I also have a Chevy Captiva 2L Diesel but with the auto box. The MPG on that one is abysmally bad! I bought it a few weeks ago with just under 30K miles on the clock (2007 model), and it returns around 230 miles on a full tank! That's around 17 MPG and probably on par with a Hummer!!
I was expecting the auto box to be less efficient than the manual of course but not to consume twice as much. Anyone out there with any ideas as to why this could be? I was actually already checking under the car to see if it loses fuel... We live in the suburbs and our trips can be considered a mix of urban and extra urban (they are admittedly on the short side and from a cold winter start; still, this doesn't justify the extremely low MPG). The car seems adequately powered for its weight and considering the small'ish engine and auto box.
Thanks!

Holden Captiva. The battery appears to be flat as when I go to turn it over it just makes a clicking noise. Am I able to jump start the Captiva with my little Nissan pulsar?


Hi Leana a couple of things spring to mind, Yes it could be a matter of a flat battery.You haven't mentioned what year or if it's petrol or diesel.if it's petrol as long as the second car battery is good should be ok. If it's diesel it may struggle but only by trying will you know. However i would advise leads used should be fitted with a surge device to protect all on board computers (ECUs).Connect good battery negative lead to neg batt terminal & Positive lead to poss terminal, on poor battery positive lead to pos terminal on batt and negative lead to a good earth point on 'engine' Be very careful not to reverse any polarities or touch the two cables together. Depending on year of vehicle if series 2 diesel have come across starter motor main cable or alternator main cable or both where the securing nut has come loose damaging starter and loom and alternater wire. This also creates either a clicking noise and or a no start. advise Holden dealer repair.Good luck.

What is the maximum Towing ATM for my 2016 Holden Captiva 7 diesel 2.2l? Various sources claim anything between 1700kg to 2000kg.


It is 2000 Kg braked, and 750 Kg unbraked. That is the same in 2WD and AWD. However check on the rated capacity of the towbar and hitch, as you must not exceed that.

I changed the spark plugs on my holden captiva took for test run. Now its idling rough when stationery.


Hi,if it was running fine before you put the spark plugs in just take them back out and with a feeler gage check the clearence of the spark plug it should then run ok.
(when the spark plug makes its jerny it gets thrown arrond a bit so always check the clearances,all the best.
