Hyundai recommends having your 2017 Hyundai Elantra GT’s motor oil changed 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 engine knocking, smell oil inside the car, or notice an unusual amount of exhaust. You may also need an oil change more frequently than Hyundai recommends if you haul heavy loads, drive in dusty terrain, go off-roading a lot, or go at low speeds on long distance trips. In general, being extra-diligent about oil changes won’t damage 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.

2017 Hyundai Elantra GT Oil Change Q&A

  • Should I check my Hyundai Elantra GT motor oil level? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If you're low or out of oil, these parts can grind together, overheat, 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.
  • Can I change my Hyundai oil on my own? First off, changing your own oil isn’t as easy as you’d 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 it’ll also help your car perform smoothly down the road.
  • Why is my Hyundai exhaust smoke gray or blue? Your engine could be burning oil due to a leak. Time to have a qualified technician check things out. The leak could be caused by several issues like leaking valve seals, damaged piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
