Your Guide to 1987 Hyundai Excel Scheduled Maintenance

When it comes to your Hyundai Excel, how you treat your car makes all the difference in its performance. With the right maintenance at the right time, you could hit 200,000 miles (or beyond!) in your Excel. Not an expert in what services your car needs and when? No problem. It can be overwhelming, but fortunately, there’s a resource that takes the guesswork out of routine Excel maintenance. Just follow your 1987 Hyundai Excel maintenance schedule!

The recommended maintenance schedule is put together by Hyundai, your vehicle manufacturer. Scheduled maintenance services can vary depending on driving conditions, climate, and other factors; in most cases, though, recommended maintenance will consist of services like fluid exchanges, filter changes, new brake pads, oil changes, and tire rotations. Staying on track with routine service appointments can help your Excel perform better, keep you safer on the road, and help you avoid expensive repairs caused by 1987 Hyundai Excel problems later.

Essential Maintenance to Keep Your Hyundai Excel Running Newer, Longer

Come to Firestone Complete Auto Care for manufacturer-recommended routine maintenance on your 1987 Hyundai Excel and our technicians will jump right in with a Courtesy Check. This Courtesy Check can establish a baseline of what may need to be addressed during your service appointment. During a Courtesy Check, we’ll always check your battery, then we’ll move on to inspect your Excel’s head and tail lights, tires, fluid levels, alignment, and windshield wipers.

Think you could be due for a new battery in your 1987 Hyundai Excel? If your current battery is more than three years old, it may be time for a replacement (batteries typically last somewhere between three and five years). There’s a chance you’ll need a replacement sooner, but it depends on the climate in your area as well as your driving habits. Taking short trips or exposing your car to extreme temperatures (like in the dead of winter or heat of summer) could reduce the life expectancy of your Hyundai Excel battery. Sure, you could wait until your battery is completely dead, but it’s a much wiser decision to replace it before you need to. Otherwise, your battery could die unexpectedly, leaving you and your Excel stranded. Your Hyundai Excel could quickly go from being a trusty ride to a source of stress in a matter of minutes.

Staying on schedule for battery replacements and motor oil changes can support your engine’s overall performance and keep your 1987 Hyundai Excel running newer, longer. See Hyundai's recommendations for oil change intervals for your 1987 Excel in the chart at the top of this page. Don’t forget, though, that weather conditions in your area or your personal driving habits can affect this interval. Talk to a Firestone Complete Auto Care technician to know when to change your oil.

We can help you with all those issues. Our technicians have the knowledge and tools to repair and maintain the heating and cooling systems for your Hyundai Excel’s engine, and we can service your A/C system, too.

  • When should I have Hyundai Excel alignment checked? Watch out for pothole damage. If your 1987 Excel is pulling to one side or the other, your tires or suspension system could be calling out for help.
  • When should I use high mileage oil in my Hyundai Excel? If your Hyundai Excel has ticked past 75,000 miles, consider switching to high mileage oil at your next oil change to give your engine what it needs to go another 75,000 (or more!). High mileage oil: make it a high priority!
  •  Why are my Hyundai dashboard lights on? It's better to get them addressed as soon as possible. An illuminated dashboard light means something in your vehicle isn't functioning like it should.
