When to Change 2016 Hyundai Elantra GT Engine Oil

Not sure how or where to get your Hyundai Elantra GT’s oil changed? 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, 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 changing your 2016 Elantra GT’s oil at regular 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, smell oil inside the car, 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 terrain, enjoy off-roading, or go at low speeds on long distance trips. Generally, getting more frequent oil changes won’t hurt your Hyundai Elantra GT. In fact, more frequent oil changes give our technicians more opportunities to catch and alert you to any issues, like worn brake pads or a weak battery.

2016 Hyundai Elantra GT Oil Change Q&A

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Hyundai Elantra GT? Engine oil is a lubricant for the moving parts in your engine. If your oil runs low, engine parts can grind together, overheat, and cause your Elantra GT’s engine to fail. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • Can I change my 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 professionally changed reduces the chances of something going wrong with the oil change, but also with your vehicle down the road.
  • Why is my Hyundai Elantra GT spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? Your engine could be burning oil due to a leak. Time to have a qualified technician check things out. A leak can be caused by a variety of issues including faulty valve seals, blown piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
