Yep. I usually change every 3K miles.Will read that thread later today; thank you. Fuel could be leaking into the engine via the fuel pump, or the injectors, like if they leak when engine is shut off. Having said that, with that history, it's critical to change the oil at 5K-mile intervals, no? Which is what I do. I also hope Hyundai changed something on the newer engines like mine (2022), but I honestly doubt it. Wonder if Hyundai will keep making the 2.0T, now that the 2.5T is out. The fact they didn't convert it to 'SmartStream' (with dual injection) for 2023, like they did with the 3.8L V6 on the Palisade/Telluride, I don't think so. Does anybody know for certain? Thank you.
Good info; thank you. DI engines indeed have more fuel dilution than PI ones indeed. And also condensation from short trips could raise the oil level as well, although that evaporates after a long drive. Finally, I'd NEVER let an oil filter there after an oil change; that's the most important part of an oil change. Plus you're leaving quite a bit of dirty oil in there, so that's not a smart idea. Between the oil filter, and the amount left there when you loosen it, it's quite a bit. Finally, it's also a good idea to remove the drain plug, or you'd be leaving all kinds of crap at the bottom of the pan, eventually turning into sludge. I also have a fluid extractor, but only use it for brake fluid changes. And when I get new cars overfilled with oil. Oh, and I always use OEM filters, due to the fact the specs for the pressure relief valve are never specified, plus OEM filters are almost as cheap as any other, so cheap insurance IMO . Take care.
The HPFP runs off lobes on one of the cams.How does fuel from fuel pump leak into engine bypassing the injectors?????
Had a Saturday 11AM appointment and the service advisor had me in a loaner at 12:30PM. A 2021 Sonata Limited , very quick car that got 35MPG. They wanted the loaner back; met at the dealership to swap out to a Nissan Kicks rental on Monday. Returned the rental at the dealer and had my vehicle back on Thursday at 5PM. So 5 1/2 days total, they had to wait on parts.Myself, and some others have consistently been suffering from fuel diluting the oil.
I have been tracking it here: 2020 2.0T Oil Analysis
So far the dealers have thrown up their hands and said to investigate further, I would need to open a case with Hyundai.
I relocated to Florida last month. So far I have noticed with the hotter weather here, the oil level has gone from being above F to right on the F mark where it was when I changed the oil. I will need to do another analysis to see if the levels have gone down to normal due to excess fuel being burned off.
If I find that the oil is still being diluted, I most likely will just go ahead and open a case....depending on the projected time I will have my vehicle sitting at the dealer...
How long did it take to get this fixed? and did they provide you with a loaner?
