My Hyundai i30 is blowing smoke

Asked by Barry

At 2000 km my 2014 Hyundai i30 was blowing blue smoke under medium acceleration. It was checked under warranty and no problem was found, but now at 40,000 km it’s blowing smoke again, and this time there is lots of smoke. I’m having it checked, but is this normal?

You don’t say if it’s a petrol or a diesel, but no, it’s normal, although there are reports of smoke from the i30. If it was a diesel I would suggest there is a problem with the turbocharger, but something is clearly wrong and you are right to have it checked, particularly as it is still under Hyundai’s new car warranty.
