Hyundai EGR Coolant Pipe Problem

Hi about a month ago we were left with a Hyundai i10. Consequently, the guy had a couple of problems with the car. Subsequently, the main problem was that he had an intermittent water leak. The guy thought it was from the engines radiator, but was not sure.

On his arrival he said that he had another problem. Hence, his central locking remote did not work. Of course, we sort of knew that the two were not linked. Consequently, we gave the keys to one of our courtesy cars and off he went to work.

As most people in the garage trade know. So, we have friends in other garages who are specialists in one brand of car. Because, we were not sure about the Hyundai’s lock problem, then we gave him a call. Jeff is his name from a local garage in Sowerby Bridge, a small town near Halifax, Yorkshire UK.

Jeff, worked with an apprentice and one of his specialties is of course, Hyundai cars. Of course Jeff is always eager to help and pass on anything he can to help. Here in Yorkshire, we like to feel that we are friendly people and help each other out. Especially, with specialist tools or technical information.

First thing he advised us was to change the battery. Accordingly, we fitted a Lucas 005L battery to the i10 as this was the correct replacement battery. Unfortunately, this did not cure the problem. Our Hyundai expert Jeff, then went on to explain that this was a common problem. Of course, he said that the remote just needed re-programming.

Because we did not have the Hyundai equipment, then we drove the car to Jeff’s garage. He kindly reprogrammed the remote and checked for other codes that may have caused the problem in the first place. Of course, he knew that he would need a favour from us and so did not charge us for the job.

However when the car was moved we did notice a wet patch. Hence from underneath the engine compartment. On close examination we spotted a fluid leak coming from a hose. Tracing the hose back we discovered that it was the EGR valve coolant hose that was leaking. Believe me it is a great relief when things go right.

As a result, we can spend hours diagnosing a fault or trying to find an oil or water leak. Fortunately this was something that the Hyundai main dealer kept in stock. Because it was a next day delivery, then we had to keep the car until the following day. The part arrived and was fitted Dale Linton. One of our mechanics. The customer collected his car and was a happy man. Consequently, we did not charge him for his failing lock problem he just paid for the new battery and the EGR valve coolant hose fitting.
