Question about 2011 Hyundai i30
Bought i30 2013 model recently noticed a sklitch (gear contact) when changing from 5th to 6th gear took it back to main dealer, who (dropped the gearbox) located the fault and, told me they changed the gears for new ones refitted the gearbox test drove the car all within 6 hours, is that possible? oh, still got sklitch but was told the sklitch would (might)disappear when car driven over a period of time, also told gear change would be a (little stiff)for a while, does this make sense to any motor car technician out there? Would appreciate your input.
It sounds like BS to me but what do I know. I'm only in this business for 40 years. What they did was put heavy oil in the gear box to try to mask the sound. That's why it is difficult to shift (stiff).
Alway ask for the old parts when a replacement is not visible after repairs!

how many miles have you driven the car sence it came out of storage? you said it sat for 6 years it could be rust on fly wheel or pressure plate, that would make it shift like you said, because the clutch plate is either sticking to the fly wheel or pressure plate. when it shifts hard that means the clutch is not releacing all the way most likely because of the rust. i would just drive it and see if it comes out of it. it shoud not take long maybe 50 to 100 miles more or less. also i would chg. trans oil, setting that long moisture could have got in there, you know what they say about oil and water. also if it has a cable for clutch chk. see if it's hanging up to. setting that long rust becomes a big factor. hope this helps.

SOURCE: four new batteries fitted since
Muriel-sounds like you do not drive a lot, so that is probably causing a problem with your batteries-a battery is like a water tank, it starts out full, and it drains when the car is not running due to loads imposed on it by the radio memory, computer memory, and other things. If the drain is long enough (car sits) the batteries' ability to 'recharge' is diminished due to the conventional construction of a standard battery. A normal car battery can only be discharged a few times and come back-if you do a lot of short trips, and it sits long period of times, that is brutal on a CONVENTIONAL lead/acid plate battery. You should seriously consider getting a deep cycle battery-they are usually used in Marine enviornments, but can be used in cars (I have an Optima Yellow top in my Jeep, it is not driven much, and sometimes is only used for short trips). While these batteries are pricy can be found for about $200 or less) they can easily last 8-10 years and they car be fully discharged hundreds of times and they come back fully when recharged-ideal for your circumstances.
this is assuming the dealer knows what they are doing...after the car sits overnight, the battery should read 12.5 volts. when first started. it should read close to 15 volts at the battery AND at the large post on the back of the alternator-it should gradually drop down to around 14+ volts, and should stay close to the even with the lights and heater fan running ar full blast. if it is doing this, your driving circumstances dictate you get a battery more suited to you driving habits.
