This is very enlightening....thanks for sharing. for those M/T owners na nag update to euro 2, kamusta na? happy and satisfied na ba kayo sa performance, meron pa ba kayong naririnig na metalic sound as mentioned here in video during shifting? i'm using shell unleade d since my ecu was updated to euro 2, okay na performance ng kotse ko pero meron pa din akong naririnig minsan na metalic sound, very short sound, during shifting....parang piston.
My apologies,but I do not speak the language.Might I ask for any responses to be in English please?Is the Accent still having this knocking problem,or has it been resolved with no loss of power?My opinion is that if the fix for the problem results in engine power loss,then it is not a fix,it is a bandaid.
I have been strongly considering purchasing an Accent.It is a nicer looking car (in my opinion) and has good value for my money,but if this is still an ongoing problem,then is does not speak well of Hyundai's ability to solve problems with their cars with customer satisfaction as their main objective.
Advice or first hand experience is certainly welcome.
Where do you live?
You might not have the petrol issue that we have here... It's a big factor...
My unit is doin ok after the ecu 2 , no loss of power naman so far after the update 3 weeks ago. im fueling gold and v power since mababa naman ang gas ngayon.
I'm in the PI.I do understand that the fuels are less than optimum,but a car manufacturer should be aware of,and adjust for, the market that they are selling in.I am not a fan of the notion that you have to seek out the higher octane (and more expensive fuels)like you mentioned in your post above CVT.
I have not read any reports of the other manufacturers cars having any problems.
My purpose for posting is simply to find out whether or not the issue has been resolved with no performance compromise.(loss of power).I appreciate makro trying to help,but in my opinion,telling your customers that they must use premium fuel in a 1.4L,doesn't seem like the way to correct a problem.It is a cheap way to fix it (for the manufacturer) but not so much for the customer who pays higher fuel costs because the manufacturer couldn't,or wouldn't fix the problem correctly.
Anyone else care to share their experience or insight?
I think the issue has been resolved by HARI. Well, as of this time.
I've heard from one overseas fuel specialist that Hyundai's ECUs don't adjust well to poor fuel quality. And that's what the problem boils down to, basically... the mix varies from station to station and brand to brand. Two fuels marked 93 RON (research octane number) will often not have the same MON (motor octane number). Now RON is a measure of how easily a fuel "knocks"... but MON is more important to some people, because it shows how easily a fuel knocks under load... which better represents real world conditions.
Then add the problem of ethanol mix, water and poor station maintenance, and sometiems even the RON won't match what is marked on the pumps.
Thus: If your car is sensitive. Stick to a known, trusted fuel brand, and fill up only from a single station (in good repair), so if anything goes wrong, you know who to blame.
Ang pagbalik ng comeback...
