Your Guide to 1998 Hyundai Accent Scheduled Maintenance

Take care of your Hyundai Accent and it'll take care of you. With proactive maintenance, your Accent could be on the road well past the 200,000 mile mark. So, you want to care for your car, but you’re not sure when to get certain services. Instead of waiting for an issue to arise with your Accent, you can stay ahead of problems before they even begin. Rely on the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been created just for your 1998 Hyundai Accent!

The recommended maintenance schedule is put together by Hyundai, your vehicle manufacturer. Depending on driving conditions and climate in your area (as well as other contributing factors, like your personal travel habits), your car’s scheduled maintenance needs may vary; in most cases, though, recommended maintenance will consist of services like fluid exchanges, filter changes, new brake pads, oil changes, and tire rotations. Keeping up with routine service appointments is a great way to keep your Accent running for longer, increase your vehicle safety, and prevent common 1998 Hyundai Accent problems.

Learn About Vital Maintenance Needs for Your Hyundai Accent

Come to Firestone Complete Auto Care for manufacturer-recommended routine maintenance on your 1998 Hyundai Accent and our technicians will jump right in with a Courtesy Check. A Courtesy Check helps "set the stage" for your service and catch any small problems before they turn into big repairs. Each Courtesy Check includes a free battery test and an inspection of your Accent's windshield wiper blades, head and tail lights, filters, fluid levels, tires, and alignment.

Maybe it's time to find a new auto battery for your 1998 Hyundai Accent. If your current battery is more than three years old, it may be time for a replacement (batteries typically last somewhere between three and five years). Yours may need to be replaced sooner depending on your driving habits and climate. Taking short trips or exposing your car to extreme temperatures (like in the dead of winter or heat of summer) could reduce the life expectancy of your Hyundai Accent battery. It can be tempting to try and get as much life out of your battery as possible, but it’s smart to check it regularly and replace it before it gets too weak. If you keep driving on a battery that can't hold a charge, you run the risk of being stranded when your battery finally gives out (and no one can predict where that might be!). Your Hyundai Accent won’t even be able to start with a weak battery, much less get you where you need to go.

In addition to maintaining a strong battery, investing in regular oil changes can support your engine’s overall performance and keep your 1998 Hyundai Accent running newer, longer. Reference the chart toward the top of the page if you're not sure about the optimal oil change intervals for your 1998 Accent. Don’t forget, though, that weather conditions in your area or your personal driving habits can affect this interval. Talk to a Firestone Complete Auto Care technician to know when to change your oil. We'll also help you understand what type of oil to use for your 1998 Hyundai Accent.

Maintaining your Hyundai Accent steering and suspension system can not only ensure a smooth ride; it can also help you maintain control of your car in compromised road conditions. Don’t let a misalignment or pulling steering wheel put you in danger. Trust our technicians to inspect system components and if needed, perform Hyundai Accent suspension and steering services. These might include wheel alignment, power steering fluid flushes and replenishments, ball joint lubrication, wheel bearing replacement, and strut replacement. Components within your Hyundai Accent's steering system require regular maintenance.

If you skip recommended Hyundai Accent services, you (and your engine) could quickly lose your cool when there's a problem on the road–especially if that problem is an overheated engine or broken A/C. Don’t sweat it, though! Our technicians can take care of those issues, too. At Firestone Complete Auto Care, we have what it takes to provide top-notch service for your Hyundai Accent engine heating and cooling systems, as well as your air conditioning. Is your Hyundai Accent radiator in need of replacement? We got it. Is your A/C blowing hot air? We'll fix it. Firestone Complete Auto Care is the place to go for 1998 Hyundai Accent maintenance.

We can help you keep your vehicle (and your life!) running smoothly. Many of our locations have weekend and evening hours for your convenience.

Take an active role in maintaining your 1998 Hyundai Accent. Get answers to common Hyundai Accent maintenance questions and learn more about caring for your vehicle.

  • When should I have Hyundai Accent alignment checked? You know your Hyundai Accent better than anyone else, so you’ll know if something doesn’t feel right while driving. Have your alignment checked (and adjusted if necessary) as soon as you notice a pulling steering wheel to prevent suspension damage or uneven tire wear.
  • When should I use high mileage oil in my Hyundai Accent? Do you have more than 75,000 miles on your Hyundai Accent? If so, request to switch to high mileage oil at your next oil change. This type of oil is specially formulated to keep aging engine parts in the best possible condition.
  • Can Hyundai dashboard warning lights wait? Because there might be a problem under the hood. Those warning lights are there for a reason!
