When to Change 2014 Hyundai Elantra GT Engine Oil

Looking for oil change recommendations for your 2014 Hyundai Elantra GT? Get the advice you need at Firestone Complete Auto Care! We're experts in more than tires. Oil and lube services are also our specialties. 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.”

Hyundai recommends having your 2014 Hyundai Elantra GT’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above. No matter the mileage, your Elantra GT may need its oil changed ASAP if your check engine light is on, you hear knocking sounds coming from the engine, smell oil inside the vehicle, or notice an unusual amount of exhaust. You might need an oil change more frequently than what’s recommended by Hyundai if you regularly haul heavy loads, drive in dusty terrain, go off-roading a lot, or go long distances at low speeds. Generally, getting more frequent oil changes won’t hurt 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 2014 Hyundai Elantra GT?

Your local Firestone Complete Auto Care has the right 2014 Hyundai Elantra GT motor oil: either synthetic or conventional. Hyundai has recommendations as to whether conventional or synthetic oil is the ideal engine oil for your 2014 Elantra GT. This oil helps lubricate engine parts, regulate engine temperature, 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, inspect the rest of your car’s filters, top-off important 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 the number of miles on your odometer.

2014 Hyundai Elantra GT Oil Change Questions

  • Should I check my Hyundai Elantra GT motor oil level? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If your oil runs low, engine parts can grind together, generate excess heat, and eventually lead to Hyundai Elantra GT engine failure. That’s why it’s best to check your oil levels and get your oil changed regularly.
  • How hard is it to change Hyundai Elantra GT oil at home? Changing your own oil isn't as convenient as you might think. You’ll have to figure out how to properly dispose of the oil and buy special tools. Having your oil changed professionally can not only reduce the risk of something going wrong during the service, but also with your vehicle down the road.
  • Why is my Hyundai Elantra GT exhaust smoke grayish or blue? There could be an oil leak and your engine is 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, damaged piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
