When to Change 2018 Hyundai Elantra Engine Oil

Not sure how or where to get your Hyundai Elantra’s oil changed? Turn to Firestone Complete Auto Care! We're experts in more than tires. We know all about motor oil, too. We couldn’t put it better than our technician, Brianna. She likes to explain to customers that, “Oil is the blood of the engine. It’s the #1 thing you can do for your car.”

Your 2018 Elantra’s oil should be changed according to Hyundai’s recommended oil change intervals. See mileage and month specifics in the above table. No matter the mileage, your Elantra may need its oil changed ASAP if your check engine light is on, you hear engine knocking, smell oil inside the car, 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 areas, 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.

2018 Hyundai Elantra Oil Change Questions

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Hyundai Elantra? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If you're low or out of oil, these components can grind against each other, generate excess heat, and cause your Elantra’s engine to fail. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • Can I change my Hyundai oil on my own? Changing your own oil isn't as convenient as you might think. It requires special tools and old oil must be disposed of properly. 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 exhaust smoke grayish or blue? There could be an oil leak and your engine is burning oil. Looks like it’s time for a professional to take a look. The leak could be caused by several issues like leaking valve seals, damaged piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
