How Often to Change 2021 Hyundai Elantra Oil

Looking for oil change recommendations for your 2021 Hyundai Elantra? Look no further than Firestone Complete Auto Care! We are experts in car care — not just 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.

Your 2021 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 engine knocking, smell oil inside the car, 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, enjoy off-roading, or drive at low speeds for long distances. 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.

Oil Change Q&A for Your 2021 Hyundai Elantra

  • What can low oil do to my Hyundai Elantra engine? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, engine parts can grind together, generate excess 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 engine oil at home isn’t as simple as it’s made out to be. 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 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. It may be time for a pro to take a look. The leak could be caused by several issues like leaking valve seals, blown piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
