Question about 2007 Hyundai Tucson Limited
Hi, I have recently purchased a tuscon with 70,000km on the clock. When i got it home a warning light was on the dash. I took it to my closest dealer and he found fault code DTC 0011. He also found that the previous owner had only serviced it once and it had done 40,000km between services. The caryard had serviced it before i bought it and neglected to tell me this. He found the cam faser valve was dirty with sludge and after cleaning it the fault was rectified. He now reccomends the sump and rocker be removed and cleaned of sludge so i dont get a blocked pickup. The caryard where i bought it has given me a 3 month warranty but disputes that this needs to be done. The caryard is not a hyundai dealer and i was looking for hyundais opinion. My local hyundai dealer is predominantly holden so i'm not sure how experienced they are with hyundais. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thankyou, Damian Magnay
40 000 km without a service? that car is in serious trouble - the dirt inside it must be horrible. Yes, both the sump and the rocker must be removed for cleaning, the time when you could have used a simple oil cleaning additive is long gone. If they take them out make sure they also do a thorough cleaning on the rest of the engine.
To make sure that the engine is in good order, for the next 3 oil changes make them at 5000 km after running a cleaning additive on the engine.And use only good quality oil filters from now on.
