Engine replacement story

So about a month ago I noticed a metal on metal sound coming from the front of the motor.
So I took it to the dealership. A week or so later they let me know that my timing components had to be replaced.

I got a call a week later and now they hear a new sound coming from on the bottom of the motor and there looking into it. Another week later I'm told that the engine needs to be replaced.

This is the first real issue I've had with the car . It's a 14 3.8.R with about 50k . All the work is under warranty, the dealership actually took good care of me even with my bolt on's on the car. I haven't been told what the cause was or all the work that their doing. And I won't have my car back until around the 20th.

My question is what type of things should I be worried about with having a engine replaced? Is this a good or a bad thing. I have always felt that I got the runt of the litter. Like the motor didn't feel as strong as others I have driven.So I'm excited and alittle worried at the same time. Now it has had a major surgery with only 50k.

Thanks for reading.

If all of its being covered by warranty...you should consider yourself lucky lol. A brand new motor is a good thing for sure, clean install from the dealership doing the work and prolonged life of the car, doesn't get much better than that. Also its for sure better than having your motor go out at X amount of miles when you're well out of warranty and have to pay for it all out of pocket. Your car basically just got a new life haha.

depends if they have the new motor in their possession yet, if it's a complete engine, or just the short block.

Probably a few more weeks. You get a loaner? Sometimes dealerships get backed up

I had mine done in 3 months time. I really didn't mind due to everything was new and the dealership threw in a brand new battery for free. Hyundai does not have long block setups anymore for the 2.0t. Chances are you are waiting for the short block to come in and there is a long wait on those.

They never had a long block unit... for warranty repairs.
They did have a long block for the crate motor program that was short lived. the motor would have to be purchased out of pocket, because of how their warranty inventory works.

If the shop had the motor already, it would take a busy shop about a week.

it should only take a half a day if the install the head and do the swap if that is all they are working on

I'm only going off what was told to me by the Hyundai tech. When he first came to the conclusion that the engine would have to be replaced the first thing he stated was there are no long blocks available anymore for my vehicle.
I had to wait almost 3 months for a shortblock to arrive from Hyundai. He assembled everything there at the dealership and it took him 2 days time. Car runs awesome now.

My motor was replaced at 82,500 miles. It was tied up for 23 days, but they gave me a free rental for that time. The new motor purrs like a kitten and I just hit 100,000 miles yesterday. The car seems to run better than ever before. I am a happy camper!

When I replaced replaced mine (I think it was in 2011), dealer quoted me $9,000 for a short block.
Said screw that and bought a complete engine for $3,500 shipped from florida to alaska, and the engine only had 127 miles on it.
Guy said it was it was from a dealer and he was the parts guy. Story was it was a test drive accident, hydroplane, and sent photos of the car and vin.

My dealer made it a big deal when I had mine towed in, and that "oh we're going to have to fly in a genesis tech to come look at this"
The car is easier to work on than 90% of the cars on the road. Only took me about 3 hours to swap it in. Never been to that dealership since.

My thought was that they were trying to make it something special since it was in the "genesis" line (remember this was early in the years the genesis line was released in north america), where it's just like any car mechanically.

Wait 1 more month. You've waited this long. If you can get another car to have as a daily driver. It's usually worth it in the future as long as you have space to park it.

so i contacted the service center and they said the short block is on back order so that pretty much means i won't have my car for a total of 5 months anything i can do for them to hurry the process???

I wish you the best. I'm in the same boat. My turbo went out and took the engine with it. They told me it would be a couple of months, its nearing the end of a couple of months and my car is still sitting outside the shop. I'm starting to think what they told you is more accurate.

My engine failed at 65k on December 1, 2018.
It is now may 24, 2019 and they can’t find an engine, keep pushing dates, am I ever going to get my car back? If so do I trust it? I’m livid with Hyundai because they cannot answer me.

I was told that Mobis, one of Hyundai's North America parts distributors, has engines on back order, not just for the Genesis vehicles, but others as well. In the case of our platform, since Hyundai no longer offers the crate engines, our replacements are a collection of parts that will have to be assembled at the shop or assembled at one of Mobis's facilities. In the case of our block they may have to newly manufacture it.
