Question about Hyundai Motor S

1 Answer

My wife has a Hyundai Getz diesel (1.5 CRTD GSI) which starts fine from completely cold. It also starts fine after it's warmed up completely. The problem is when you try to start the engine when it has not warmed up enough. Revs won't go higher than about 1500 and you press the accelarator thick black smoke comes out of the exhaust. If you try to drive off while the car is in this state it won't move much faster than about 5 mph while it's giving out black sooty smoke out of the exhaust

I've the same probem, it's been 'fixed' twice in the cars life but re-occurs.
I believe the throttle body gets 'gunked-up' possibly due to a faulty solenoid or sensor.
I don't have a full solution but will post when I do.

    hi ninjabadger, it's me have also posted a message about the same problem on the "honest John" forum and I replied by ending with something like " this space.." came back from the garage and so far so good.
    The following was written on the invoice:

    THROTTLE BODY JAMMED SHUT UPON STARTING (so there is your problem clearly stated)


    Now they said that the cause of the gunging up of these components was a faulty Exhaust Gas Return (EGR) valve solenoid. So, they also replaced the solenoid ! Or so they said..Now it's a reputable garage and I hesitate starting to suspect that they are not telling the truth about replacing the solenoid. They said that that's what their diagnostic tests indicated...but why on earth did diagnostics not pick that up in the first place? thinks..

    Anyway...they did not charge me for replacing the solenoid. They said that once I'm totally satisfied that the car continues to work well (as far as this problem is concerned) then I can go in and pay them for the solenoid. (Aren't they generous!!)

    So I'll give it a couple of weeks and see how it goes.

    What do you think ninjabadger?

    I would be interested in finding out how the cleaning process mentioned above is carried out so that I can carry it out myself because it's not a cheap job !! Also because it's really a lovely car in every other respect !



    PS I will post the same solution on the Honest John forum in case there are other poor sods who can benefit from it.

My grans hyundai getz 53 reg had an abs fault, i tried my bosch kts an snap~on solus but would not give any fault codes, i borowed a friends diag tool an it found an engine mgnt fault in abs system, i...

hi from uk for your info there was a recall back in2004/5 for the getz relating to the abs system going faulty my wifes 2003 getz gsi was recalled and i took car to dealers for her to enquire what fault has there beenon some getz with abs system? as fault had not occured on ours ? apparently there had been a fault with the wire loom to pump particularly the earh cable deteriating ? so this loom had to be inspected and replaced under warranty however as i had waxoiled all underneath our getz including abs pump due to its location low down the loom was ok but was changed anyway and recorded and a dated sticker placed on cars glove compartment door inside to verify loom changed ? SO b4 you progress any further i would check with hyundai tech dept to whether you car had been inspected or whether slipped through unchecked ? your gran should have had a recall as we did for modified loom hope this helps?

Hyundai Getz - Passanger airbag or not...

If it says "airbag" on the stering wheel AND on the dash in front of the passenger,then it has a passengers side airbag.
Children are much safer in the back seat in the event of a collision.
