When to Change 1995 Hyundai Accent Engine Oil

Not sure how or where to get your Hyundai Accent’s oil changed? Look no further than Firestone Complete Auto Care! We are experts in car care — not just tires. We know the ins and outs of motor oil, too. After all, "Oil is the blood of the engine. It's the #1 thing you can do for your car," says our maintenance technician, Brianna.

Hyundai recommends changing your 1995 Accent’s oil at regular intervals. See mileage and month specifics in the above table. Outside of Hyundai-recommended oil change intervals, your Accent may need an oil change if your check engine light is on, you hear knocking sounds coming from the engine, smell oil inside the vehicle, or notice excess vehicle exhaust. You might need an oil change more frequently than what’s recommended by Hyundai if you regularly haul heavy loads, frequent dusty roads, go off-roading a lot, or go at low speeds on long distance trips. More frequent oil changes generally won't harm your Hyundai Accent. In fact, every oil change is an opportunity to diagnose and treat any other issues, such as bad brakes or a failing battery.

What’s the Right Type of Oil for 1995 Hyundai Accent?

Your local Firestone Complete Auto Care has the right 1995 Hyundai Accent motor oil: either synthetic or conventional. Hyundai has most likely outlined either synthetic or conventional as the ideal engine oil for your 1995 Accent. This oil helps lubricate engine parts, regulate engine temperature, and keep harmful substances from building up inside the engine. During an oil change, a technician will change your Accent's oil, replace and recycle the old oil and filter, check all of your other filters, top-off important fluids, and visually inspect the rest of the vehicle. You can rest assured knowing that we seek to do what’s best for your Accent by considering your driving preferences, and mileage.

1995 Hyundai Accent Oil Change Q&A

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Hyundai Accent? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If you're low or out of oil, engine parts can grind together, generate excess heat, and cause your Hyundai Accent engine to fail. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • How hard is it to change Hyundai Accent oil at home? First off, changing your own oil isn’t as easy as you’d think. You’ll have to buy special tools and figure out a way to recycle the old oil properly. Having your oil professionally changed reduces the chances of something going wrong with the oil change, but also help your car perform down the road.
  • Why is my Hyundai Accent spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? There could be an oil leak and your engine is burning oil. Looks like it’s time for a professional to take a look. The leak could be caused by several issues like leaking valve seals, damaged piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
