When to Change 1994 Hyundai Excel Engine Oil

Need more info about 1994 Hyundai Excel oil changes? Turn to Firestone Complete Auto Care! We're experts in more than tires. We know the ins and outs of motor oil, too. After all, like our maintenance technician Brianna says, “Oil is the blood of the engine. It’s the #1 thing you can do for your car.”

Your 1994 Excel’s oil should be changed according to Hyundai’s recommended oil change intervals. See mileage and month specifics 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 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 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 Excel. Each oil change is actually another chance to check and resolve other car issues, such as worn brake pads or tire treads.

What’s the Right Type of Oil for 1994 Hyundai Excel?

Whether you need high mileage oil, synthetic oil, or conventional oil, you'll find the right 1994 Hyundai Excel motor oil at Firestone Complete Auto Care. Hyundai has most likely outlined either synthetic or conventional as the best motor oil for your 1994 Excel. Motor oil reduces friction between engine components, regulate engine temperature, and prevent the build-up of harmful substances within the engine. During an oil change, an auto technician will change your Excel’s oil, replace and recycle your used oil and filter, check all of your other filters, refill vital car fluids, and visually inspect the rest of the vehicle. You can drive with confidence knowing that we look out for you and your Excel by taking into account your driving style, weather and road conditions,

1994 Hyundai Excel Oil Change Q&A

  • Should I check my Hyundai Excel motor oil level? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If you're low or out of oil, these components can grind against each other, generate too much heat, and cause your Hyundai Excel engine to fail. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • How hard is it to change Hyundai Excel oil at home? Changing your own oil isn't as convenient as you might think. It requires special tools and old oil must be disposed of properly. Having your oil changed professionally can not only reduce the risk of something going wrong during the service, 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. Looks like it’s time for a professional to take a look. The leak could be caused by several issues like leaking valve seals, damaged piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
