    I would appreciate your help on two issues.
    Can anything be done about the soot? Does it cause any problems with the cat converter or exhaust system? The dealer says this is due to ethanol in gas, is that the cause?
    Is this GDI engine vulnerable to deposit builup on the intake valves or has Hyundai eliminated this problem with their engine design? Is any special maintenance required to prevent it? The dealer says I need to have them clean the valves every 15,000 miles for $130 to prevent it. This is obviously not in the required maintenance from Hyundai.
    Thanks for your help. Look forward to your reply.

    Maybe you can help with some info. Have a 2013 Azera/tech. Really like the car but disappointed with the soot from the exhaust and concerned about residue build up on the intake valves. *Is there a solution and what impact does all this dirt have on the cat converter and exhaust system? *If residue builds on the valves is it covered by warranty? *Is any special maintenance required to prevent this? *Is there something in the design of the Hyundai GDI engines that prevents or reduces this problem? Should I even be concerned about it? Thanks for your help. Look forward to your reply.
