Hyundai Genesis 3.8 ProblemsRough idle or hard start when cold
A rough idle or hard starting condition may develop, most noticeable when the engine is cold, with fault code P161B stored in the powertrain control module (PCM). Our technicians tell us that a PCM software upgrade is available to correct this concern.
An idle fluctuation may be noted, the Check Engine Light may or may not illuminate. Replacing the throttle position sensor and updating the powertrain control module (PCM) software will commonly correct this concern.
A whine type noise may be noted from the power steering pump. This can be caused by a clogged reservoir which can aerate the power steering fluid. Cleaning the reservoir screen will restore proper fluid flow, reducing the noise.

Hyundai Genesis 3.8 RecallsWindshield Wipers Stop Operating
The seal for the wiper motor cover may fail, causing moisture to get inside and corrode the circuit board. This would result in failure of the wiper motor. Dealers will replace the wiper motor cover and seal free of charge to resolve the concern.
The original equipment tires, Hankook Ventus S1 noble2 model, may develop sidewall cracks and as a result leak air and fail. Dealers will replace the factory tires with tires of another brand free of charge to resolve the concern.
When shifting the transmission shift lever to a desired gear, that gear may not show up properly in the instrument panel display. This could lead to an unintended gear being selected. The cause is water intrusion into the combination lamp housing. Dealers will apply pads to prevent water intrusion into the combination lamp housing free of charge to resolve the concern.
