How Often to Get 2018 Hyundai Accent Oil Changes

Need more info about 2018 Hyundai Accent oil changes? Get the advice you need at Firestone Complete Auto Care! Our expertise goes beyond tires. We know all about motor oil, too. After all, like our maintenance technician Brianna says, “Oil is the blood of the engine. It’s the #1 thing you can do for your car.”

Your 2018 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 knock knock knock coming from the engine, smell oil inside the car, or notice an unusual amount of exhaust. You may also need an oil change more frequently than Hyundai recommends if you haul heavy loads, drive in dusty areas, adventure off-road, or go long distances at low speeds. In general, being extra-diligent about oil changes won’t damage your Hyundai Accent. Each oil change is actually another chance to check and resolve other car issues, such as worn brake pads or tire treads.

What’s the Right Type of Oil for 2018 Hyundai Accent?

Whether you need high mileage oil, synthetic oil, or conventional oil, you'll find the right 2018 Hyundai Accent motor oil at Firestone Complete Auto Care. Hyundai has specifically identified either synthetic or conventional as the ideal engine oil for your 2018 Accent. Motor oil reduces friction between engine components, regulate engine temperature, and prevent harmful substances from accumulating in the engine. During an oil change, one of our techs will change your Accent’s oil, replace and recycle the old oil and filter, inspect all of your other filters, top-off important fluids, and perform a free inspection on the rest of your vehicle. You can drive with confidence knowing that we look out for you and your Accent by taking into account your driving habits, and mileage.

2018 Hyundai Accent Oil Change Questions

  • What can low oil do to my Hyundai Accent engine? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If your oil runs low, these parts can grind together, overheat, and eventually lead to Hyundai Accent engine failure. 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 your own oil isn't as convenient as you might think. It requires special tools and old oil must be disposed of 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 exhaust smoke grayish or blue? You could have an oil leak and have a case of burning oil. Looks like it’s time for a professional to take a look. A leak can be caused by a variety of issues including faulty valve seals, fried piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
