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.

Your 2001 Accent’s oil should be changed according to Hyundai’s recommended oil change intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above. 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, 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.

2001 Hyundai Accent Oil Change Q&A

  • 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, overheat, and cause your Accent’s engine to fail. That’s why it’s best to check your oil levels and get your oil 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 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? 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, blown piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
