Frequently Asked Questions About Hyundai Oil Changes


What is an oil change?

An oil change is, as you'd expect, the process of changing out dirty oil and replacing it with clean oil - and a clean oil filter - to keep your vehicle at peak performance and efficiency. This is an important way to maintain the performance of your Hyundai, both now and into the future.

Why do I need an oil change?

Putting off changing the oil in your vehicle will cause damage to your pistons, valves, and engine, shortening the lifespan of your vehicle and reducing its performance and efficiency. To promote longevity and protect your investment in your vehicle, oil changes really are an essential service.

How often do I need an oil change?

While the specific oil change interval for your vehicle can be found in your owner's manual, the majority of vehicles need an oil change roughly every 7,500 miles. Your Service Indicator Lights or Service Interval System might give you an indication, and some modern vehicles will even warn you directly when a necessary oil change is imminent.

How can I tell if I need an oil change?

There are a few different things to watch out for if you think your car might need an oil change, even if your vehicle hasn't given you an indication from the low oil light, or the service indicator light hasn't become illuminated yet.

One indication might be if your engine sounds louder than normal while driving or when you start it up. You might also experience sputtering performance, such as the inability to maintain a smooth speed on the highway, because of a clogged oil filter. And if you see or smell engine exhaust, then this is a strong sign that you're in need of an oil and oil filter change.


What kind of engine oil is best for my Hyundai?

The type of oil your vehicle needs depends on your specific Hyundai model and model year, but the skilled technicians at our service center will have no trouble helping you out. We only use genuine Hyundai-approved oils here at Tysinger Hyundai, so talk with our experts and get the assistance you need.
