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.”

Your 1992 Elantra’s oil should be changed according to Hyundai’s recommended oil change intervals. Check out mileage and month info for your Elantra in the above table. Outside of Hyundai-recommended oil change intervals, your Elantra 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 vehicle, or notice excess vehicle exhaust. You may also need an oil change more frequently than Hyundai recommends if you haul heavy loads, drive in dusty terrain, adventure off-road, or go long distances at low speeds. Generally, getting more frequent oil changes won’t hurt your Hyundai Elantra. 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.

1992 Hyundai Elantra Oil Change Questions

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Hyundai Elantra? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, these components can grind against each other, generate too much heat, and cause your Elantra’s engine to fail. That’s why you’re better off checking your oil levels and investing in routine lube services.
  • Can I change my Hyundai Elantra 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 it’ll also help your car perform smoothly down the road.
  • Why is my Hyundai Elantra exhaust smoke grayish or blue? Your engine could be burning oil due to a leak. 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, blown piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
