Hyundai Palisade Recall: Engine Risk Due to Valve Springs

In a new recall, over 4,000 Hyundai Palisades from the 2024 model year are being recalled because valve springs might break due to faulty components.

Although only 1% of the recall population is likely to be affected by this issue, if the valve springs break, a hole could be created in the engine-

block. Palisade is only available in the United States with a 3.8-liter V6 engine that produces 291 horsepower.

A technician must inspect each vehicle individually to determine whether it is affected or not, according to Hyundai.

It has identified 4,235 models that may have this issue. We do not know if the problem is related to multiple valve springs in the same engine or-

if it is caused by a specific valve spring position. Anytime an engine sub-assembly needs to be replaced, Hyundai is promising to replace it free of charge.

When a dealer reported a stalling issue caused by a fractured valve spring in October of 2023, the Korean automaker became aware of the problem.

During an engine teardown conducted by the company on December 11th, the same problem was revealed.

In 2024 Palisade vehicles, 18 valve springs were found to have broken by January 2024.

During the production process, the springs were damaged, which seems to be the source of the problem.

V6 engines can stall if they have a broken valve spring inside. Broken springs can occasionally get punched out of the combustion chamber-

by pistons when they are punched through the block. Crashing or even catching fire isn't ideal for anyone.

While this issue may seem serious, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration-

(NHTSA) has not reported any accidents, injuries, or deaths related to it in the United States.

As a result, Hyundai has had to recall these SUVs. It will be announced on April 13th, 2024, to dealers and customers. The NHTSA.

gov recall database can be searched using your vehicle's VIN if you own a 2024 Palisade.

Despite sharing a 3.8-liter V6 drivetrain with the Palisade, this recall fails to mention the 2024 Kia Telluride.
