When to Change 2014 Hyundai Equus Engine Oil

Not sure how or where to get your Hyundai Equus’s oil changed? Look no further than Firestone Complete Auto Care! We're experts in more than tires. Oil and lube services are also our specialties. 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 changing your 2014 Equus’s oil at regular intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above. Your Equus may need an oil change right away if your check engine/oil change light is on, you hear knock knock knock coming from the engine, smell oil inside the car, or see an excess amount of vehicle exhaust. You might need an oil change more frequently than what’s recommended by Hyundai if you regularly haul heavy loads, frequent dusty roads, adventure off-road, or go long distances at low speeds. More frequent oil changes generally won't harm your Hyundai Equus. 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.

What Type of Oil Does My Hyundai Equus Need?

Whether you need high mileage oil, synthetic oil, or conventional oil, you'll find the right 2014 Hyundai Equus motor oil at Firestone Complete Auto Care. Hyundai has most likely outlined either synthetic or conventional as the ideal engine oil for your 2014 Equus. This oil helps lubricate engine parts, keep the engine cool, and keep harmful substances from building up inside the engine. In an oil change service, an auto technician will change your Equus’s oil, replace and recycle your used oil and filter, inspect all of your other filters, refill vital car fluids, and perform a free inspection on the rest of your vehicle. You can rest assured knowing that we seek to do what’s best for your Equus by considering your driving style, and the number of miles on your odometer.

Oil Change Q&A for Your 2014 Hyundai Equus

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Hyundai Equus? Engine oil is a lubricant for the moving parts in your engine. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, these parts can grind together, overheat, and eventually lead to Hyundai Equus engine failure. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • Can I change my Hyundai Equus 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 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 Equus spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? Your engine could be burning oil due to a leak. Looks like it’s time for a professional to take a look. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, damaged piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
