    Veloster Turbo Discussions

  3. Reccomended Gasket Maker

    Veloster Turbo Problems / Help
    I was looking for some input on what is the best gasket maker out there for the oil pan. I bought the oil pan extender (Tork) second hand, but the kit did not include any gasket maker. I have done some research and I came across the Loctite Gasket Maker 518, but I don't know if it is resistant...

  5. Toyota addresses LSPI in DI-Turbo motors

    Veloster Maintenance
    And they do it with this.... "Toyota Genuine Motor Oil SAE 0W-20 for Direct Injection Turbo Gasoline Engines" I know, I know....it's the wrong viscosity for us (5W-30 or 5W40, per the manual). But if your past your warranty, or have a built motor after blowing yours and being denied warranty...
  6. Small amount of oil on filter after change?

    Veloster Maintenance
    I did an oil change last week and I have drove the car since. There hasn't been any oil deposits on the ground (and it did sit for three days straight in the same spot), but I decided to take a look just to see if everything was clean and noticed some oil on the outside of the filter. I don't...
  7. Jack Placement

    Veloster Turbo Problems / Help
    This issue may have come up in other posts but I didn't find the answers I needed. I purchased an R-spec and realized that it didn't have a jack in the trunk. Its odd, but, I didn't mind since I have a floor jack. I have jack stands and I know where to put them, but the main problem I am having...
  8. Oil Capacity Question

    Veloster Maintenance
    It seems like the majority of you guys are agreeing that the car is taking considerably less oil then what the manual states. I however, since purchasing the car have been following the manual and using 4.8 quarts of oil and completely puzzled by this. I did an oil change tonight, lifted my car...
  9. Gear engagement/synchronizater difficulty - better fluid maybe?

    Veloster Turbo Discussions
    So I have noticed, probably due to cold weather, that the shifter can be difficult to engage. What I mean is that when you shift in any gear, the engine slows down at about the same rate as a Mack truck, or possibly more like a diesel ship engine, so if you are trying to engage the shifter into...
  10. Veloster Turbo Oil Capacity error?????

    Veloster Turbo Discussions
    I just did the first oil change on my 2013 Turbo Veloster. I pulled the plug and filter and let sit 45 minutes to drain. I put a new filter on and added 4.8 quarts per the manual. It states 4.8 quarts for the Turbo GDI and 3.8 for the GDI. When I checked the dipstick, it was measuring about...
  11. zMAX Micro-Lubricant additive, experiences?

    Veloster Maintenance
    A buddy of mine recommended zMAX Engine Lubricant to be added the engine oil whenever the oil is changed. They also offer additives for the transmission, and fuel injectors too. I haven't used them before, but it sounds interesting to me. Anyone have any experience with their products? Can...
