Need more info about 2021 Hyundai Accent oil changes? Get the advice you need at Firestone Complete Auto Care! Our expertise goes beyond tires. We know the ins and outs of 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 changing your 2021 Accent’s oil at regular intervals. See mileage and month specifics in the above table. 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, sense an oil smell in the cabin, or see an excess amount of 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, adventure off-road, or go long distances at low speeds. 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.

2021 Hyundai Accent Oil Change Q&A

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Hyundai Accent? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, these parts can grind together, generate excess heat, and cause your Hyundai Accent engine to fail. That’s why you’re better off checking your oil levels and investing in routine lube services.
  • Can I change my Hyundai oil on my own? Changing engine oil at home isn’t as simple as it’s made out to be. It requires special tools and old oil must be disposed of properly. Having your oil professionally changed reduces the chances of something going wrong with the oil change, but also help your car perform down the road.
  • Why is my Hyundai exhaust smoke gray or blue? Your engine could be burning oil due to a leak. 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, damaged piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
