Hydraulic knocking from engine bay

Post by Rob Young » Sun Dec 30, 2018 10:28 am

HI, I am experiencing a noise like a hydraulic knocking from the engine bay. It is most prominent at low rpm & wasn't present when new (November 29th 2018) It is a Niro 2 & covered 1200 miles. Anyone else have a similar condition?

Apart from this fairly minor issue (I hope) the car is excellent in every respect, & I am genuinely pleased!
Cheers Rob

Hi Rob Young.
Sorry to hear of your woe. Presumably when your in electric mode noise stops?
Does the noise change as engine warms up or alter at all or sound different if you increase revs in Park mode when stationery.
Assume you have checked oil and water levels and plan to return to dealer asap

Hi,
The technician was really good, drove the car whilst I was the passenger & said the transition from EV to engine was normal!
