Everthing was fine till the engine conked. And if i remember correctly my cars fuel pump is leaking diesel. the leakage is very small though. i was told by the A.S.S. they will try and change the gasket of the pump first otherwise i will have to get a new pump. it costs around 30k. But they also said that there wont be any problems except for the diesel leak.

Please let me know if this could be the problem. Im not ready to spend 30k rightnow.

Also, can the fuel pump get damaged in an engine seizure?

cheers

A faulty pump can play havoc with performance.
Also clip, can you post some details about exhaust smoke and what color is it?
Note the exhaust smoke when you cold start the car.
Do you see any missing etc., going on near high rpms?

Do you get any funny smells?
I think every thing is fine. There is no missing, The car starts instantly even in the coldest of weather.

That diesel leak in the fuel pump could be the culprit. Im really tired of this thing now. but i still have to live with for atleast 2 years.

Can i get a used fuel pump(from a totalled car) if it is in perfect working order?

Sorry for being off the topic, but this makes me think that engine overhaul at 80k and then paying Rs 65,000 for the engine. Are Diesel engines really worth the money what we pay to OEMs.


Amit
Yes, i believe they are worth it. The current generation diesels are great. I had a diesel octy which clocked 1.25L kms before getting stolen. My fiesta diesel has done 90k without any trouble. I have seen lancer diesels driven for more than 3L kms. An opel astra TD 2.5L

I think, the problem lies with this particular engine design. Many accent crdi's are facing engine troubles.

I had an OHC 1.5 and i clocked around 1.7L kms before totalling the car. This car was driven like on a race track throughout its life. (i was an engine vengine types earlier)

Get the diesel leak fixed, that seems to be the problem for now.
If Hyundai *** is too expensive, try some other garage to source the fuel pump.

Was it the fuel pump that conked and you ended up overalling your engine.The fuel pump in accent is too sensitive and i have seen lots of examples for this.You can use a pump from a totalled car but ensure that its working before the change is done.

Get the pump replaced/serviced and recalibrated if required. Dont risk such slippages for a newly built engine.

Ill do that. Lets see if a new seal can fix it. The guy at the A.S.S. was saying the fuel pump has alot of pressure, installing a new seal might not fix the problem. i don't understand why.

Can't i get it repaired? why shouldn't a seal work? if the thing is not perfectly flat, can it be machined to make it flat so that the seal(gasket?) can do its job.

No, the pump was fine. The engine conked due to over heating as there was no water in the radiator.

Oh i remember one more thing. My accents doesn't pick up water from the reservoir even it the radiator is empty. i cleaned the hoses and they are fine. what could be the trouble?

Must be a bad engine job.

If your engine work is not balanced these things tend to happen.

Not discouraging, just go through the initial run-in after the engine is done.

These things tend to happen during the run-in period.

Why no water in the radiator? Where did the coolant go?

A hose was leaking. thats why the engine conked.

@iraghava,

i think the water pump is fine as the car does not over heat at all. the tem is stable.

on the same note have the fuel lines checked, have all the things said above done but please ensure that you do all this personally in front of your eyes, i know that these hyundai guys will speak about rules and stuff but them this is you problem and you would like to get all these checked in front of your very own eyes in a decent but serious tone and they should oblige or get the aid of the service manager!.

its necessary that you see what actually is being done by these guys so as to know what is going on!. these guys will act smart saying that they will get the problem rectified at once and will ask you have a seat and all that dont pay attention to that. i have been offered this several times but i stayed with my car most of the time during services!

and i am still waiting for the answers!

Hey,

thanks for the suggestions bro. i will definitely look into the matter myself. they will do it in front of me for sure as customers can go into the working area i think.

I have been given a warranty for 6 months unlimited mileage. If there is a problem with the engine, they will have to repair it free of cost.

wish me luck guys. i will take my car day after.

another thing i want to mention about A.S.S. i have a fiesta and its ac has leaked gas. i sent the car today for repairs. they told my dad it takes 10 hours to open the dash for servicing.

I dont believe this. Is this really true? The standard of ford A.S.S. is really poor. the worst i have experienced. These *** 's have really pissed me off.

Engine died at 79600kms.!!!

The other day i was talking to the service advisor in superon hyundai he told me that 70%+ accent crdi's die between 60k-80k kms.i can recall endless list of names of my friends who got their engines overhauled at similar mileage.

The advisor also told me that the problem is only with accent crdi.
