When to Change 2016 Hyundai Equus Engine Oil

Not sure how or where to get your Hyundai Equus’s oil changed? Get the advice you need at Firestone Complete Auto Care! We're experts in more than tires. We know the ins and outs of 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.

Hyundai recommends having your 2016 Hyundai Equus’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. See mileage and month specifics in the above table. Outside of Hyundai-recommended oil change intervals, your Equus may need an oil change if your check engine light is on, you hear knocking sounds coming from the engine, 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 areas, go off-roading a lot, or drive at low speeds for long distances. More frequent oil changes generally won't harm your Hyundai Equus. Each oil change is actually another chance to check and resolve other car issues, such as worn brake pads or tire treads.

2016 Hyundai Equus Oil Change Q&A

  • What can low oil do to my Hyundai Equus engine? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If your oil runs low, these components can grind against each other, overheat, and cause your Hyundai Equus engine to fail. That’s why you’re better off checking your oil levels and investing in routine lube services.
  • How hard is it to change Hyundai Equus oil at home? First off, changing your own oil isn’t as easy as you’d think. You’ll have to buy special tools and figure out a way to recycle the old oil properly. 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 exhaust smoke gray or blue? Your engine could be burning oil due to a leak. 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, fried piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
