woow! that engine has a lotta promise. If you are mad about getting your vehicle modified check out "brraj" 's mod thread. I did not know the 2L crdi was already there on the elantra and sonata. And for the looks the car looks stunning. It looks like one of those american muscles!

@maverick Congrats on ur possession!!! I have gone through the entire thread and belive you have done lot of background analysis before getting her and you know in and out of your beast

Though I was bit disappointed with my experience with the Accent CRDi and decided not to go for Diesels from Hyundai, now getting engrossed with the idea of sourcing an Elantra CRDi after reading this thread

Lol, right you are Ashish. RD standalone ECU is one of the mods I have thought about. Seriously planning for intercooler upgrade, removing the catcon and adding another tuning box that connects to the rail sensors. Maybe a boost controller too. Thanks to my friends from tbhp who are generous enough to guide me.

Thanks buddy. Sorry to hear about your experience, I believe Hyundai did a bit of trial and error with the Accent's 3-pot CRDi engine. My car has done 62k kms till now and still running perfectly. I know of a few Elantras that have done 1 lakh plus kms and still going strong. Have heard of one in Mumbai from a reliable source that has done 4 lakh odd kms without an engine overhaul

@Jonam - I know 2 elantras which has crossed 1+lakh kms and its still running smoothly.

Things to consider
- Do a Radiator flush.
- I guess you have changed timing belt by now (we change the timing belt for 50k kms to be in safer side)
- Use Shell synthetic for better engine life and change it every 7k kms.
- Clean intercooler.
- Use engine protectors like OWS/bardhal.
- Ask hyundai people to use scanner to check if there is any engine problems.
- Drain the brake fluid and add new.
- keep an eye on coolant level, power steering oil level and engine oil level.

Ignore if you have done it.

Is it a stock elantra or modified ?

If you maintain well, any car for that matter you can munch miles with it.

Thanks dear for yr reply.i had changed timing belt at 80000 now at 155000.
i generally change oil at 10000 intervels.Now i think my engine has started decompression at least thats what the people at the service centre say.

see when i start the engine and pull out the dip stik there is smoke comming out through it.Also when u run 7000 kms i noticed a there is approximatly a 600 ml drop in oil level .

I think these are all signs of engine wear-and-tear.I use bardhal at every oil change.and mine is a stock car .its self driven and has run 100% on with ac on.

will talk to my service guy regarding radiator flush and intercooler cleaning.

Jonam:Good doing with Elantra.Expecting the baby to clock 1 lac more kms from now.
Start using the synthetic oil with regular intervals.Try changing the oil for every 5 or 7k from now on.

Adding to brraj

Put Nitrogen in the tyres against normal air. You will make out the difference in the ride quality immediately.

with Shell Synthetic Oil the frequency can be 10K kms. I do it that way but ensure you change the oil filter and diesel filter also. This would ensure cleanliness of your engine.
