Did you ask them what they were looking for?

Tell the service manager to call WarrantyDept and advise them that the inside of the motor looks just like the inside of a motor.

Motto for advice giving on a forum: You can lead a horse to water, but you can't make it drink.

Sad country is where most neutered men can't change a tire or use a tire PSI gauge, can't check their engine oil or even pop their hood.

TrollBots are everywhere. Paid trolls are easy to spot in the 'off topic' forums everywhere.

Those who say it cannot be done, should not interrupt the person doing it.

Your typing is bad as mine, but I use the excuse that my 3 reattached fingers don't work too well anymore. That would be XG9688. I also recommend ANY full synthetic filter from any common brands.... Wix, Napa, Purolator, Amsoil, RoyalPurple, Ryco..... Fram synth filter is a great choice as are any synth filter. Napa Platinum is on sale for $5 and is a steal for that price point and worth stocking up a few. Synth media won't biodegrade on the garage shelf.
FRAM ULTRA Spin-on Oil Filter XG9688 | FRAM
https://www.napaonline.com/en/p/PFL41334

For turbos, I recommend 5w-40 because it is a grade mentioned in the owners manual. Even though I have faith in ALL the available brands in 0w-40, for some reason, the clueless tech writers left out 0w-40, 0w-30, 10w40, 5w50, 15w50..... which I also wouldn't fear to use.

A 5w40 would usually have a slightly higher HTHS than a 0w40. And, HTHS is the front line protection coming from your oil.

And to annoy the use it forever greenie crowd, I recommend replace the oil/filter at the severe service intervals in your owners manual. All data that I've seen has convinced me that GDI needs it. Nothing has proven otherwise.

Yup, I fat fingered that one! It is XG9688 for the filter. My OCI is 4K based on the severe service description in my owners manual and mainly the UOAs I've done over the years with BlackStone and now Polaris Labs. I use Top Tier 93 octane gas (mostly Costco but also Exxon and Shell). I used to run Mobil 1 0W-40 and switched to Castrol Edge 0W-40 as a result a couple of years back. And yes, I recycle the oil folks. The whole 0W-40 vs. 5W-40 topic seems to be a regular one on BITOG forums. Given my location (East TN, not super cold in Winter) I'd be fine with 5W-40 if I could find it for the same as I pay for 0W-40 Castrol Edge. YMMV.


I also drain about 1-2 oz of "gunk" from my PCV side OCC at every OCI.
This is my daily driver and I put about 40 miles on her daily to/from work, at a mix of highway/city driving.

I tend to let price decide on oil grades.... I keep a little collection of various grades that I can use to thicken or thin motor oil. Grabbed some clearance full synthetic 40 and 50 grade motorcycle oils and will blend that in 1-2 quarts at a time with whatever 'common' synth I use. Good way to spike an oil for viscosity. I don't think I've ever paid full price for synth oil... its either on the clearance rack, on sale, or rebated heavily.

That long 20 mile x2 commute daily does much for your engine. I think that many owners are short distance commuters that build up fuel/moisture/crud in their engines and don't change frequently enough. I wish that Costco would open around here.

My filters and oil get recycled. So, if I use a few extra gallons, I don't worry. I doubt that too many dump used oil and filters into the drinking reservoir anymore. Greenies make it seem that oil changes will cause the sun to be extinguished and cause the moon to split. I just don't feel the guilt!

Got my car back this week with the new engine, thanks Hyundai and my local dealer!

2011 Sonata 2.4, 160k miles, I own the car since 110k miles.
OCIs about 3k miles at same dealer.

Oil consumption results:
1. 500miles 2qt
2. 500miles 1.5qt
3. 500miles 2qt
4. 500miles 2qt

Replacement took about 3 weeks, 1st week was a "waiting" for Hyundai's approval. Rental was provided for the whole period.

Before the test, dealer also said they would do a compression test and might inspect the engine with borescope, but eventually this wasn't done, or at least I am not aware of it.

I wanted to replace few more parts along with the engine, like the serpentine belt, but was told that mechanic would let me know if anything needs replacement. Next time I was contacted with "car done, transferred parts were in good shape". Allright

I did visual inspection, all looks good, hopefully nothing was screwed up. I plan to keep a closer look on fuel pump and "break in" the engine for about 1k miles.

Replaced parts as per invoice:
21101-2GK50-QQH ENGINE ASSEMBLY-SUB
21111-2GK50-QQH SERVICE KIT
21111-2GK70-QQH SERVICE KIT
25470-2G050-QQH TUBE ASSY-OIL COOLER

I wish good luck to everyone with their oil consumption tests, if you think whether to do it or not, do it! I agree though that 1q per 300miles is somewhat too much.

Will also paste here my experience trying to fight oil consumption, in my case this was just a waste of $$.
Quote:
I tried Liqui Moly engine flush twice (for 15 min before oil change), Bg109 EPR (for 15 min before oil change), Sea Foam twice (as directed, for 500 miles before oil change), MMO last 3 times (every time for 3k miles). Also piston soaked with Sea Foam twice and with MMO once (every time overnight), NOTHING HELPED. Last 40k miles I had 3k OCIs with full synthetic oil (5W30 high mileage Castrol and then Valvoline) and M1 filters.

WOW! Your car was 40K miles past warranty and not the original owner and they honored the warranty. My wife is the original owner, test was started under 120K warranty and also the 3rd new Hyundai she has owned since new and we have to jump thru hoops
I'm getting bad vibes over this....WTF

We had one that was a bit short of 200,000 mile for oil consumption,, PA approved it,, customer had a ton of service history with us

They handing out engines like no tomorrow at all kind of mileage that I am seeing at our place

Now Hyundai wants to camera scope the motor. I would think they are looking for metal shavings and scoring on the cylinder wall.
Is it Hyundai or the dealer who wants to possibly inspect the engine? How did Hyundai know about the results if the test is not complete and the dealer hasn't submitted anything yet? In my case this sounds really similar to "we'll do compression tests after all consumption steps", however nothing was done.

I agree with sbr711, just finish the test and ask them to submit papers to Hyundai, it should turn out positive, your consumption rate is pretty high.

Anyone else have to go this route or farther?

Anyone get a replacement motor with just the completed oil consumption test results?
Wow, nice that they let you go with such short mileage intervals. My dealership told me I had to go as close to 1K miles as possible. I'm into the third test now, but so far:

Test 1....1040 miles, 2.2 qt
Test 2....1087 miles, 2 qt
Test 3....855 miles (so far) and looking like it will be about the same usage...stay tuned!

In any case, they seem to think it's going to go down the PA route, even wrote as much on the service record after Test 2.
