JOutterbridge If it's not under warranty, so much easier to get a used running motor (not the OP)

lvdukerider Sorry to hear that, at least it sounds like you will eventually get a new engine.

I thought manufacturers were required to maintain a reasonable parts supply for a certain amount of time, (10 years), after the end of the production run. With that long of a time frame it dosent sound like their doing that.
I don't know anything about that. I just know I miss my car, and probably won't get to enjoy it this summer.

Could be months man. It's easier to find used engines only:/

KillerDragonKC 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.

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???

JOutterbridge 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.

sfbk2 they said short block its been 2 months and still nothing done to the car what should i do?

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.

AKGC 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.

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.

-fritz- 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!

hollysheepsht 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.

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

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

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