How Often to Change 2013 Hyundai Elantra GT Oil

Looking for oil change recommendations for your 2013 Hyundai Elantra GT? Look no further than Firestone Complete Auto Care! We're experts in more than tires. Oil and lube services are also our specialties. After all, "Oil is the blood of the engine. It's the #1 thing you can do for your car," says our maintenance technician, Brianna.

Your 2013 Elantra GT’s oil should be changed according to Hyundai’s recommended oil change intervals. Check out mileage and month info for your Elantra GT in the above table. Outside of Hyundai-recommended oil change intervals, your Elantra GT 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 notice excess vehicle exhaust. You might need an oil change more frequently than what’s recommended by Hyundai if you regularly haul heavy loads, drive in dusty areas, go off-roading a lot, or drive at low speeds for long distances. More frequent oil changes generally won't harm your Hyundai Elantra GT. In fact, every oil change is an opportunity to diagnose and treat any other issues, such as bad brakes or a failing battery.

What’s the Right Type of Oil for 2013 Hyundai Elantra GT?

Your local Firestone Complete Auto Care has the right 2013 Hyundai Elantra GT motor oil: either synthetic or conventional. Hyundai has most likely outlined either synthetic or conventional as the best motor oil for your 2013 Elantra GT. Motor oil reduces friction between engine components, keep the engine cool, and keep harmful substances from building up inside the engine. During an oil change, an auto technician will change your Elantra GT’s oil, replace and recycle the old oil and filter, check all of your other filters, refill vital car fluids, and visually inspect the rest of the vehicle. You can rest assured knowing that we seek to do what’s best for your Elantra GT by considering your driving preferences, and mileage.

Oil Change Q&A for Your 2013 Hyundai Elantra GT

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Hyundai Elantra GT? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, engine parts can grind together, generate excess heat, and eventually lead to Hyundai Elantra GT 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 GT 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 Elantra GT exhaust smoke grayish 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, blown piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
