Hello. I just had my engine replaced in my 2013 Sonata GLS @ 95,750 miles.

The receipt states REMAN. Does this mean the engine was re manufactured, and if so, what are the implications for me?

The dipstick is red, also, and I just checked the oil, and it was clear, not colored at all? Does anyone know if the red dipstick color signifies anything, and does anyone know why the oil would be clear? I have never seen engine oil look like that.

Interesting they gave you synthetic oil. Mine got semi synthetic Quaker oil when they did mine. About the same miles and same year as yours too.

Mine is about to go back in to get looked at. I’m 7000 miles in and last night it knocked for a few seconds after starting (sat for about 3 hours during a dinner I met some friends for an hour from home) and this morning I started it again with the hood open to hear it better and it’s smoking at the rear of the engine. I have an appt Tuesday. Mine was also a REMAN

Why would it be so clear? With my older engine, I always used 5w20 full synthetic, not blended, and at best it was a light honey color on the dipstick

I just had my engine replaced last week. My receipt says the same as yours. I also noticed the red dip stick. My oil also looked very pale. I will be switching to 5w30 mobile 1 synthetic at the next oil change. I’ve read our engines suffer from fuel dilution due to direct injection. Only way to combat that is more frequent oil changes and a heavier oil.

Justin keep us updated on what you find out. This is not what I wanted to hear.

5w30 sounds good. Is this the same as SAE-30?

Why? because too many useless consumers can't check their oil or top it off as needed. A little more oil means a little further before it permanently stalls.

5w30 isn't the same as SAE30

Oil will darken with time.
