How Often to Change 1993 Hyundai Elantra Oil

Looking for oil change recommendations for your 1993 Hyundai Elantra? Turn to Firestone Complete Auto Care! Our expertise goes beyond tires. We know all about motor oil, too. After all, "Oil is the blood of the engine. It's the #1 thing you can do for your car," says our maintenance technician, Brianna.

Hyundai recommends having your 1993 Hyundai Elantra’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. See mileage and month specifics in the above table. Your Elantra may need an oil change right away if your check engine/oil change light is on, you hear engine knocking, smell oil inside the vehicle, or see an excess amount of 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 drive at low speeds for long distances. Generally, getting more frequent oil changes won’t hurt your Hyundai Elantra. In fact, every oil change is an opportunity to diagnose and treat any other issues, such as bad brakes or a failing battery.

What Kind of Oil Should I Get for My Hyundai Elantra?

Whether you need high mileage oil, synthetic oil, or conventional oil, you'll find the right 1993 Hyundai Elantra motor oil at Firestone Complete Auto Care. Hyundai has specifically identified either synthetic or conventional as the ideal engine oil for your 1993 Elantra.

You can drive easy knowing that we strive to do what's best for your vehicle and take into account your driving habits, and mileage.

1993 Hyundai Elantra Oil Change Q&A

  • What can low oil do to my Hyundai Elantra engine? Engine oil is a lubricant for the moving parts in your engine. If your oil runs low, engine parts can grind together, overheat, and eventually lead to Hyundai Elantra engine failure. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • 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, fried piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
