Hi Stephan. Welcome and thanks for joining. Your name sounds very close to my last name, (hint: it's not American).

Can you please tell us why 2013 engines are blowing rods like popcorn?

we have several cars sitting on our lot waiting for engines, several sonata's, an elantra GT, and even an Accent. LOL. The last sonata we did had the NEW engine grenade itself on the lift while bleeding the cooling system (threw a p0303 cyl#3 misfire code) so we ran a stall test on the engine to see if it had a dead cylinder and as soon as the engine was loaded up it poped. They say its from not properly cleaned castings during the manufacturing process. Every car that comes in making noise has a TON of metal in the pan. Its pretty gnarly

Welcome aboard sir! Have you or your dealership seen or heard anything on "shift-shock-hesitation" going around on this and other forums. Either from the customer and/or Hyundai? Bet alot of people curious. Thanks

So, how can we know which ones are susceptible to this failure? I know the 2014+ are pretty much fixed, but I have a 2013! That doesn't make me feel better, haha. Anyway to know which ones have a higher/lower chance for failure?

we've seen alot of complaints about the dual clutch trans in the new tuscons, ive also replaced one already. Other than that most hard shifting concerns that ive seen are in the YF sonata and UD/MD elantra, and are caused by the faulty trans temp harness

thres really no way to tell until they start knocking unfortunately. We've seen cars that passed the 132 recall only to come in on a flatbed a month later.

Heyy man! Glad to see another tech on here haha. We're a small dealer (only 6 bays and an alignment rack) so USUALLY the work gets distributed pretty fairly. I'm the only A tech, we have another B tech right under me, and then 2 C's and a lube. I've been averaging around 45-50 hours but luckily for me we are union and have a 40 hour guarantee. This passed week was a nightmare tho. Had a brand new Elantra with 200 miles on it with an intermittent airbag light concern (driver side airbag high resistance) that techline had me chasing for a few hours only to come up with no problem found. And right after that I had a YF with defrost innop that ended up being the warped separator plate, had the whole dash out of that sucker. not to mention we have 3 short blocks waiting to get done that we have to build the heads from scratch on. Supposedly the long block for a pre GDI Elantra GT, and a 1.6 accent aren't available. And the week before that I had a beat to **** 16 Tucson with the DCT that only had reverse gears that I had to throw a trans in. Lots of trouble cars lately

Welcome brave soul. Already I am thankful that you would take the time to be part of this forum.

My question: Why are the 2.4l engines in the LF so noisy?
