If the car has not been serviced in the recent past-do a good service-taking care to check the injectors-fuel filter-air filter and the brakes(which may be binding and dragging)-the air filter has to be top of list and if old-do get it replaced.

So there is nothing majorly wrong with the engine -so it would be better to stop worrying and to start enjoying the drive!

Hello !

         I purchased ACCENT CRDI SEPT'05 model in July'08. Covered 25000kms.Today when i was goign to office just a km away from my house it suddenly stopped.I tried ignition --2-3 times but nothing happened. I took it to the HYUNDAI SERVICE CENTRE .They tried self 4-5 times it started normally.they said engine is damaged , its back performing(backing up)...as they found smoke in the oil check pipe. Oil level was also little low.They have given me an estimate of Rs.1,00,000 

         Now, I would like to know wht type of problem it is? Y it happened? HOw can I get it repaired at a low cost? What might have damaged or required changed?

         Hope to get ur reply soon.

Ask locally for a good workshop in Sec 16, get a second opinioin. The explanation from the ASS is vague, and I know the dealer near Indian Oil - they were careless and could never convince me when I went there to enquire about a new Verna. Is it the same dealer?

Check out the experience of an accent owner about similar (but not the same) situation. Might help.

Its the new service centre of the same dealer.NIMBUS.

Now, they have opened a new service centre in sec 64.

i have shown it to one of the hyundia mechanic outisde service centr..he has suggested me to get the whole engine overhaul but at some local workshop (prescribed by him). all spares he will arrange..in total it will cost around 35k.

The engine might well require a rebore and new gaskets-these reliability problems seems to be generic to the Accent CRDI's!

Is the 3 cylinder format the culprit?(maybe).
