2018 Hyundai Elantra GT Oil Change Q&A

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Hyundai Elantra GT? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If your oil runs low, engine parts can grind together, generate too much heat, and cause your Hyundai Elantra GT engine to fail. 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? 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 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 exhaust smoke gray or blue? There could be an oil leak and your engine is burning oil. It may be time for a pro to take a look. The leak could be caused by several issues like leaking valve seals, damaged piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
