2012 Hyundai Veloster 1.6
Thanks for all the tips 👍Nor worries, i ride motorcycles and have a 2012 none turbo Veloster.
Im at 98,000 miles.
Plugs, get the OEM or the equivelent and replace all 4 at the same time and be sure the coil packs sit correctly.
My car does not burn or lose oil magically. I run full synthetic since i got it used in 2013 with 28,000miles on it.
Check your AC refrigerent PSI that its at the correct level. I found if its a little under or over the engine will freak out because the compressor clutch will kick on and off. Will sound like it wants to die.
Check your trans oil. Mine is a Standard and holds 2 quarts of gear oil. After a dealer replaced my CV axle they forgot to put back the one quart that drains out.
The car ran fine for a month but then when i finely drove it long enough i would hear noises. Discovered the issue and drainex, refilled fresh royal purple gear oil to the correct leveland problem gone.
If it is a stick shift it has a gear indicator for which gear to move up to. If you dont see that light, be sure the sensor on the back of the clutch pedal is connected as this is for the gear shift assist.
If your getting a white vapor in your exhaust, small amounts of water are probably leaking some place. Doesnt take much to cause this but eventually you will see the coolant level drop. So keep an eye.
Also, double check all the vacuum lines and air intake for loose connections or gaps.
This is all just stuff to check since its in rough shape it sounds.
Also, if the AC switch for the fan speed starts acting up, remove the bezel and the entire AC unit and you will find the back of the control coming loose. Easy fix is to remove it, put a small clamp to hold it together properly then out epoxy to keep it together.
Hope this all helps.
Cheers I'll see if I can find a similar product here and give it a go 👍🏻I hadn't noticed... I saw one fellow suggested running her up to redline from time to time... not a bad idea... but at the mileage she's at... I would look in to running something like "Seafoam" or "Techron" through her. Both are excellent de-carboning agents and can make a big difference.
Being a motorcycllist myself (Kawi Vulcan Drifter) we would do that at every oil change. Add Seafoam... and ride it like you stole it for a bit.
