Looking for oil change recommendations for your 1999 Hyundai Accent? Get the advice you need at Firestone Complete Auto Care! Our expertise goes beyond tires. We know all about 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.”

Hyundai recommends having your 1999 Hyundai Accent’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above. Your Accent may need an oil change right away if your check engine/oil change light is on, you hear knock knock knock coming from the engine, smell oil inside the vehicle, or notice excess vehicle exhaust.

In general, being extra-diligent about oil changes won’t damage 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.

1999 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 you're low or out of oil, engine parts can grind together, generate excess heat, and cause your Accent’s 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? Changing engine oil at home isn’t as simple as it’s made out to be. You’ll have to figure out how to properly dispose of the oil and buy special tools. Getting a professional oil change reduces the risk of something going wrong during the service, but also with your vehicle down the road.
  • Why is my Hyundai Accent spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? Your engine could be burning oil due to a leak. It may be time for a pro to take a look. The leak could be caused by several issues like leaking valve seals, blown piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
