    Hyundai accent engine oil leak

    Thankz for the detailed answer. I think its better to do a compression test as you suggested. Can you recommend a place near Kadawatha-Nittabuwa area and how much it cost in average?..
  2. I have hyundai accent 2001 1.3. My problem is the engine oil levels are decrease fast (have to add 1l after 1-1.5months/about 1000km). One mechanic says there is a leak from crank oil seal and tappet cover but another one says those leaks are not considerable and the problem is oil burns due to engine wear. (145000km). The oil satrted to decrease that fast was started after about 2 months of 1st service after we bought the car. Any idea guys?. Thank you.

    Information Regarding Hyundai Elantra

    Do anyone can compare fuel consumption of elentra with accent(1.5,auto)?.. Same or higher?.. Currently we have a 2001 accent 1.3 manual but need to buy an auto.

    Help to buy 1st car

    Hey guys.. We bought a 2001 accent 1.3 manual for 12k and it is comfotable also mechanical parts are not rare and affordable.(replaced cv joints, brake pads, some belts). This car is doing good on fuel as it does 13-14 on daily runs (Mawanella, Kandy) and it did 17km/l in our trip to Anuradapura.My advice is to any new buyer, buy it with confidence and look for a one with maintenance records.

    Hyundai Accent

    😂😂😂... Don't get advices from these kind of 'siyalladath' guys who haven't used a accent. We have hyundai accent 1.3,2001,manual one. It is comfortable than any of indian cars including swift beetle.it has very good space in interior and trunk. Very good running. Good handling and good acceleration. Anyone willing to expect the comfotability of 2M car from 1.2M car...... What to say😂😂😂
  6. I found the ACCENT one on ebay and it is a genuine Hyundai one.Therefore hyundai has sold them seperatly. But couldn't find HYUNDAI one. Could find a plenty of metal(actually ABS) Emblems, but orijinally they have come with models after 2003. They'll add a better look to the car but the originality of the car is the matter. What you guys think about it?
  7. Hey guys, Does anyone know a place to buy Trunk Emblems (HYUNDAI,ACCENT named sticker like ones) of Hyundai Accent 2001? Thankz

    Help to buy 1st car

    "Arabumata perama kadualak wela" .Tried to find a FB 13 / wira all around kegalle,gampaha,Kurunagala. all of the vehicles inspected are not in good body condition. Some are with a lot of rust,some missing door trims ("Iri" in srilankan words). Wiras are also same inspected 4, one 2005 repainted, 2000 one with lost of rust under body and hood, 2004 one bad interior with a big dent on one door and overpriced. Also inspected a 2006 zen, and it is a big mess.repainted,doors are not locking,engine not tuned and the book is also little bit messy. One hyundai accent looked very good in photos ,when i went to see it is full of underbody rust,and in very bad condition. Actually we didn't even offered for any bcz they are even not in buy for lower price condition. Now I am fed up on vehicle hunting.😥😥
