Need more info about 1998 Hyundai Accent oil changes? 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. We couldn’t put it better than our technician, Brianna. She likes to explain to customers that, “Oil is the blood of the engine. It’s the #1 thing you can do for your car.”

Your 1998 Accent’s oil should be changed according to Hyundai’s recommended oil change 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 engine knocking, sense an oil smell in the cabin, or notice excess vehicle exhaust.

More frequent oil changes generally won't harm your Hyundai Accent. In fact, more frequent oil changes give our technicians more opportunities to catch and alert you to any issues, like worn brake pads or a weak battery.

1998 Hyundai Accent Oil Change Questions

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Hyundai Accent? Engine oil is a lubricant for the moving parts in your engine. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, these components can grind against each other, generate too much heat, and eventually lead to Hyundai Accent engine failure. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • Can I change my Hyundai Accent oil at home? First off, changing your own oil isn’t as easy as you’d think. You’ll have to figure out how to properly dispose of the oil and buy special tools. 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. It may be time for a pro to take a look. A leak can be caused by a variety of issues including faulty valve seals, damaged piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
