You should take it to the dealer, they have been replacing them beyond 120K! What can it hurt?

Tow to dealer, ask dealer to do "PA REQUEST" for replacement engine before you go goofing with it..... I take them out bottom with trans attached, though I remove lower bolts and torque converter bolts so I can simply remove top bolts and seperate

Got 1 out this afternoon, swap long block in morning, assemble exterior, and raise back into place

Son works at KIA dealer, I talked to 1 of the techs, he hoof it out top,, says he can have engine out in 45 minutes...

Mine blew up 2 weeks ago, dealer said if it’s obviously takin care of they will replace engine with 190k miles. But it’s when you don’t have any service records and there’s sludge packed in the engine they wont

I will check tomorrow, I did the recall and it was not one of the engines, I will drop an endoscope in it to look for sludge, I only ran Mobil 1 mostly highway miles changed the oil every 6K miles

They are all affected engines. Not a batch thing as far as anyone knows. The recall just tells you if engine is bad yet.

I know it sounds dumb, but clean out the car, wash it. Make it look like you really take care of it. Appearance goes along way I know if I was in charge of making decisions and somebody brought in their car that had so much brake dust on their front rims and it’s obvious They don’t give a crap about their car I wouldn’t pass it I’d say take it to a junkyard What if you tell me you absolutely love the car and it’s a shame that it had to happen they be sympathetic for you and try to help you out

Aren't you glad most people don't feel like that? You'd be working at Honda....:laugh:
I far as I recall...he is a Toyota worshiper (not a bad thing) and makes more money fixing Hyundai's.
I tell folks I have a "Poor man's Toyota" and can't afford the real thing!

But I do like my car...it is a nice ride! :thumbsup:

They are a nice looking and nice driving car with a nice interior but I don't have a lot of confidence in my girlfriend's 2013. Especially with how fast the oil goes black on it.

Nature of GDI,,, instructors at school refer to it as diesel with spark plugs,, fuel put into cyclinder on top of piston in similar fashion as diesel, and we use spark to light it off..

The super fine byproducts manage to get past rings to an extent and into oil

I suspect higher tension rings and regular oil change may slow it down

Sounds like a better reason to use synthetic diesel motor oil? :nerd:
