2013 Hyundai Elantra Coupe Oil Change Q&A

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Hyundai Elantra Coupe? Engine oil is a lubricant for the moving parts in your engine. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, engine parts can grind together, overheat, and eventually lead to Hyundai Elantra Coupe engine failure. That’s why you’re better off checking your oil levels and investing in routine lube services.
  • How hard is it to change Hyundai Elantra Coupe oil at home? Changing engine oil at home isn’t as simple as it’s made out to be. You’ll have to buy special tools and figure out a way to recycle the old oil properly. Having your oil professionally changed reduces the chances of something going wrong with the oil change, but it’ll also help your car perform smoothly down the road.
  • Why is my Hyundai exhaust smoke gray or blue? You could have an oil leak and have a case of burning oil. Time to have a qualified technician check things out. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, fried piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
