Hyundai recommends having your 2006 Hyundai Accent’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. See mileage and month specifics in the above table.

Oil Change Q&A for Your 2006 Hyundai Accent

  • What can low oil do to my Hyundai Accent engine? Engine oil is a lubricant for the moving parts in your engine. If you're low or out of oil, these components can grind against each other, generate too much heat, and eventually lead to Hyundai Accent engine failure. That’s why you’re better off checking your oil levels and investing in routine lube services.
  • 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 buy special tools and figure out a way to recycle the old oil properly. Having your oil changed professionally can not only reduce the risk of something going wrong during the service, but it’ll also help your car perform smoothly down the road.
  • Why is my Hyundai exhaust smoke gray or blue? There could be an oil leak and your engine is burning oil. Time to have a qualified technician check things out. The leak could be caused by several issues like leaking valve seals, fried piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
