  1. Hi experts, My car is a 01' sonata Hmatic with the four cylinder. And I think the valve stem seals have worn out. The car is at 199000km on the clock. Oil starts burning after idling for 30 seconds or so and immediately after revving the engine. This i think means that the valve stem seals are bad. I am quite positive its not the rings. ●My question is, should the head be removed in order to replace the valve stem seals? Which will also require a new head gasket, Timing belt as well because we're at it already. ●How much does it generally cost to do this replacement(s
  2. Hi guys, Just to give a proper ending to this thread to anyone who might find this useful in the future, I went ahead and took the existing radiator apart and the internals were quite corroded. (Probably because previous owners didnt use coolant, but water instead) therefore after a few scratches on the head, i decided to go ahead and discard the unit and drop in a Brand new one, yes it costs more, but the peace of mind cant be matched by putting in a recon unit. now im sure this will last for quite some time IF properly maintained, so guys thank you all for your time and knowl
  3. Top. i saw a patch of fresh coolant which is indicative. this was exactly around the place i heard the hissing sound. im quite positive that the leak is right at the seam. after seeing this i immediately called radiator house in panchi, they told me that it can be done, i was in doubt because i was under the impression that this particular fixing of the cooper tank is a one time job. but the gentleman at radiator house was quite positive that it can be fixed. so i will take the radiator to the said place and will see what can be done, i take it that this copper tank fixing
  4. Hi friends, So i was on the look out for radiators for my Hy Sonata, the one already installed has previously been fitted with a copper tank (comes plastic from factory) and that seems to be leaking pretty bad (Audible hissing sound). a brand new unit of the same costs around 22K at panchi. so before heading out for that, just wanted to get some information on reconditioned units, which are like 12K. How are these reconditioned radiators sourced for sale? (Parted out units or units that have been broken/Leaking and now fixed and sold) are these reconditioned radiators relia
  5. Okay, so before solving the trouble code... I've got to address the oil issue. I'll take it to the mech tomorrow. It's koreanLK i hope they'll do a good diagnosis of the problem., Just to further clarify, shouldn't a oil burning issue show it self with a oily spark plug end? Or rather a wet spark plug? And a head gasket issue showing itself again with a bubbling radiator and possibly engine oil in it? The engine is running super super smooth.... It might be my lack of knowledge probably. I'll get it checked anyway and let you guys know about the diagnosis. Thank y
  6. yes, that i did a few days back.....then again i didn't mind it all the much.... no i haven't, thats the best way to go about it, but i just wanted to get a small idea as to what to expect once i take it to the mech. btw, on side note, can i get an emissions test done in order to get a better idea about the issue im having? i mean if i upload the data can the experts hear get a better idea? if so i can get it done within the next 24 hours.
  7. You mean faculty 02 sensor making the engine not run right (to rich) and there by making the Cat-con go bad?
  8. 192,000km's But it sure does not run so, it runs super smooth for that milage,(one reason i got it at 185000.) And again, about the oil burning problem, shouldn't the engine run really rough and shouldn't i see a bluish smoke out the exhaust? I see none of these signs except the smell... And i did happen to pull-out two sparkplugs out, cylinder 1 and 3 and the ends look normal. I don't see any signs of oil. Which kinda brings out the obvious question, am i leaking oi? No I'm not. I see a little bit of damp ness on the timing belt cover and that's pretty much it no puddles of oil und
  9. hi, as you may have already seen in the description, i am having a p0420 engine code for a catalyst efficiency in bank 1 (4 cylinder engine). one problem ive noticed is that sometimes after a rather short trip of say about 5-10km i do get a very strong smell from the exhaust, strong to the point my eyes tear( or at least i smell it.) plus i always have to top off engine oil every 3-4 weeks or so with about 400ml - 500ml of oil. (using sae 40 caltex.) are these problems somehow related to the p0420? i will check the spark plug ends tomorrow for oil. the engine definitely is run
  10. Hi, So ive been looking for some spray cleaners (carb and brake clean) to used on some of my upcoming projects, and came across a brand named 'getsun', it looks local....but very cheap compared to some good brands like '3M' etc. Is this 'getsun' brand really cheap like its price? Or is it actually a bargain? Has anyone used this product? Please leave your suggestions. Thanks in advance.
  11. Yes you are correct, that switch will have to go to the coolant temperature sensor location, but doing so will cut the signal to the ECU, will that effect drastically?
  12. Hi ajm, Thank you for your response, yes i thought of those issues, but there are fan controllers with the kits they sell do they? I've seen alot a diy's on YouTube and most of them come with a switch, and I've seen some with a temperature probe as well, About the battery and alternator though im not too sure. But again it would be great help if you tell me where i can find these fan kits. Thanks.
  13. Hi, To kick things off, i am by no means a pro in automotive mods, nor do i totally understand the consequences from any modifications i do to my vehicle. I own a Nissan Laurel c34 with the RB20E under the hood, this particular engine has a thermostatic fan clutch for the radiator, ive already replaced it once, but the problem is the annoying sound it makes. So my solution was to change to a electronic fan ( which again i do not know if itll solve the problem) Now what i wanna know is, will this bring harm to the engine in terms of cooling which i doubt since all that matters is
