When to Change 1991 Hyundai Excel Engine Oil

Need more info about 1991 Hyundai Excel oil changes? 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.

Hyundai recommends having your 1991 Hyundai Excel’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. Check out mileage and month info for your Excel in the above table. No matter the mileage, your Excel may need its oil changed ASAP if your check engine light is on, you hear knock knock knock coming from the engine, smell oil inside the vehicle, 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, 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 Excel. Each oil change is actually another chance to check and resolve other car issues, such as worn brake pads or tire treads.

Whether you need high mileage oil, synthetic oil, or conventional oil, you'll find the right 1991 Hyundai Excel motor oil at Firestone Complete Auto Care.

During your oil change service, an auto technician will change your Excel’s oil, replace and recycle the old oil and filter, check all of your other filters, top-off essential 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 Excel by considering your driving preferences, and the number of miles on your odometer.

1991 Hyundai Excel Oil Change Q&A

  • Should I check my Hyundai Excel motor oil level? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If your oil runs low, these components can grind against each other, generate excess heat, and cause your Hyundai Excel engine to fail. That’s why it’s best to check your oil levels and get your oil changed regularly.
  • Can I change my Hyundai oil on my own? Changing engine oil at home isn’t as simple as it’s made out to be. It requires special tools and old oil must be disposed of 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 Excel exhaust smoke grayish or blue? You could have an oil leak and have a case of 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, fried piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
