2020 Hyundai Elantra GT Oil Change Questions

  • What can low oil do to my Hyundai Elantra GT engine? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If your oil runs low, these components can grind against each other, generate excess heat, and eventually lead to Hyundai Elantra GT engine failure. That’s why you should check your oil and get it 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 buy special tools and figure out a way to recycle the old oil properly. 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? You could have an oil leak and have a case of burning oil. It may be time for a pro to take a look. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, fried piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
