2017 Hyundai Accent Oil Change Q&A

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Hyundai Accent? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If you're low or out of oil, these parts can grind together, overheat, and cause your Accent’s engine to fail. That’s why you’re better off checking your oil levels and investing in routine lube services.
  • How hard is it to change Hyundai Accent oil at home? Changing your own oil isn't as convenient as you might 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 also help your car perform down the road.
  • Why is my Hyundai Accent spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? Your engine could be burning oil due to a leak. Time to have a qualified technician check things out. A leak can be caused by a variety of issues including faulty valve seals, damaged piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
