How Often to Change 2017 Hyundai Elantra Oil

Looking for oil change recommendations for your 2017 Hyundai Elantra? Turn to Firestone Complete Auto Care! We're experts in more than tires. We know the ins and outs of motor oil, too. 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 2017 Elantra’s oil should be changed according to Hyundai’s recommended oil change intervals. See mileage and month specifics 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 engine knocking, smell oil inside the vehicle, 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, go off-roading a lot, or go at low speeds on long distance trips. In general, being extra-diligent about oil changes won’t damage 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 Type of Oil Does My Hyundai Elantra Need?

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 most likely outlined either synthetic or conventional as the ideal engine oil for your 2017 Elantra. Motor oil reduces friction between engine components, keep the engine cool, and prevent harmful substances from accumulating in the engine. In an oil change service, an auto technician will change your Elantra’s oil, replace and recycle your used oil and filter, check all of your other filters, top-off important fluids, and visually inspect the rest of the vehicle. You can drive with confidence knowing that we look out for you and your Elantra by taking into account your driving preferences, and odometer.

2017 Hyundai Elantra Oil Change Q&A

  • Should I check my Hyundai Elantra motor oil level? Engine oil is a lubricant for the moving parts in your engine. If your oil runs low, these parts can grind together, overheat, 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? 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 professionally changed reduces the chances of something going wrong with the oil change, but it’ll also help your car perform smoothly down the road.
  • Why is my Hyundai exhaust smoke gray 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. A leak can be caused by a variety of issues including faulty valve seals, damaged piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
