When to Change 2011 Hyundai Genesis Engine Oil

Looking for oil change recommendations for your 2011 Hyundai Genesis? Look no further than Firestone Complete Auto Care! We are experts in car care — not just tires. We know the ins and outs of motor oil, too. We couldn’t put it better than our technician, Brianna. She likes to explain to customers that, “Oil is the blood of the engine. It’s the #1 thing you can do for your car.”

Hyundai recommends having your 2011 Hyundai Genesis’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above. Outside of Hyundai-recommended oil change intervals, your Genesis may need an oil change if your check engine light is on, you hear engine knocking, 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, go off-roading a lot, or drive at low speeds for long distances. Generally, getting more frequent oil changes won’t hurt your Hyundai Genesis. Each oil change is actually another chance to check and resolve other car issues, such as worn brake pads or tire treads.

Oil Change Q&A for Your 2011 Hyundai Genesis

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Hyundai Genesis? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If you're low or out of oil, engine parts can grind together, overheat, and eventually lead to Hyundai Genesis engine failure. That’s why you’re better off checking your oil levels and investing in routine lube services.
  • How hard is it to change Hyundai Genesis oil at home? First off, changing your own oil isn’t as easy as you’d think. It requires special tools and old oil must be disposed of properly. Getting a professional oil change reduces the risk of something going wrong during the service, but it’ll also help your car perform smoothly down the road.
  • Why is my Hyundai exhaust smoke gray or blue? There could be an oil leak and your engine is 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, fried piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
