Routinely changing your oil is an essential part of automotive maintenance. As a Hyundai owner, you’re accustomed to smooth drives and high-quality – sticking to regular maintenance will help preserve that feeling behind the wheel! If you don’t keep pace with Hyundai Elantra recommended oil changes, your engine could suffer as a result. Neglecting oil changes can lead to overheating and excessive wear and tear. Generally, most vehicles need an oil change once every 7,500 – 10,000 miles, but you can find out the exact intervals in your owner’s manual.
If your Hyundai Elantra is due for an oil change, you can always schedule service with us at our Folsom Hyundai service center to get the maintenance you need in no time. However, if you have a DIY spirit, you might be asking what kind of oil does a Hyundai Elantra take? Below, you’ll find information on the Hyundai Elantra recommended oil types. What’s more, if you’re eager to take on the project in your Sacramento or Rancho Cordova garage, you can follow the steps below to change your Hyundai Elantra’s oil.
The proper Hyundai Elantra oil type comes in two variants: conventional and synthetic. Conventional is unrefined crude oil that’s used in most vehicles. With conventional, you’ll need an oil change every 3,000 – 5,000 miles. However, it’s important to remember that conventional oil is the most affordable option.
Synthetic oil is more expensive upfront, but offers enhanced qualities and is the ideal Hyundai Elantra oil type. Synthetic oil is refined and includes additives that help the oil last longer and work better. Synthetic oil can last up to 10,000 miles before it needs to be changed.
So, what kind of oil does a Hyundai Elantra take? If you’re shopping for Hyundai Elantra oil, select the following grades of either synthetic or conventional:
5W-20 or 5W-30 oil offers the proper density for your Elantra to brave winter cold and summer heat. If you opt for 0W-15 or a 10W-40 oil, the oil will be too thin to properly protect the engine parts or too thick to work between them. When in doubt, ask our service pros for guidance when selecting the correct Hyundai Elantra oil type.
If you’re ready to roll your sleeves up and get to work on your Elantra, the following steps will guide you through how to perform a Hyundai Elantra oil change:
