When to Change 2015 Hyundai Elantra Engine Oil

Looking for oil change recommendations for your 2015 Hyundai Elantra? Turn to Firestone Complete Auto Care! We're experts in more than tires. Oil and lube services are also our specialties. 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.”

Hyundai recommends having your 2015 Hyundai Elantra’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above. Outside of Hyundai-recommended oil change intervals, your Elantra may need an oil change if your check engine light is on, you hear knocking sounds coming from the engine, sense an oil smell in the cabin, 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, adventure off-road, or go long distances at low speeds. More frequent oil changes generally won't harm 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 it’s synthetic, conventional, or a blend of both — your local Firestone Complete Auto Care has the right oil for your Hyundai Elantra. Hyundai has recommendations as to whether conventional or synthetic oil is the best oil for 2015 Hyundai Elantra vehicles. This oil helps lubricate engine parts, regulate engine temperature, and keep harmful substances from building up inside the engine. During an oil change, a technician will change your Elantra's oil, replace and recycle your used oil and oil filter, inspect the rest of your car’s filters, top-off important fluids, and perform a courtesy inspection on your entire vehicle. You can drive with confidence knowing that we look out for you and your Elantra by taking into account your driving style, and mileage.

Oil Change Q&A for Your 2015 Hyundai Elantra

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Hyundai Elantra? Engine oil is a lubricant for the moving parts in your engine. If you're low or out of oil, these components can grind against each other, generate excess heat, and eventually lead to Hyundai Elantra engine failure. That’s why it’s best to check your oil levels and get your oil changed regularly.
  • 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. Getting a professional oil change reduces the risk of something going wrong during the service, but also with your vehicle down the road.
  • Why is my Hyundai Elantra spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? 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, blown piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
