When Should You Get Your Hyundai Oil Changed?

When you want your engine running at its best, we recommend that you pay attention to your owner's manual when it comes to changing your oil. They have the guidelines that work the best for your engine and when you should get your oil serviced. Typically, we recommend that you should get the oil changed every 5,000 miles or six months, whatever comes first. Synthetic oil users can typically go longer in between oil changes at around 10,000 miles but you should always pay attention to the signs that your engine provides when it's in need of a change.

Signs that You Need an Oil Change

There are a few ways you can stay aware of your oil life:

  • Oil Level and Color: You can easily check your oil life by pulling the engine's dipstick out and seeing the oil level. If the oil is low or the color appears as a dark brown or black color, you should consider an oil change immediately.
  • Check Engine Light is On: When the engine determines that your oil is too low, the check engine light will pop up on your dash to inform you that you should get your engine changed. This usually occurs when the oil life is low, so pay attention to this signifier and schedule an appointment as soon as it appears.
  • Engine Noise: If your engine is making loud knocking noises or seems to be struggling more than usual, this might mean your oil is low or has worn past the point of being effective.
