How Often to Get 2016 Hyundai Genesis Oil Changes

Need more info about 2016 Hyundai Genesis oil changes? Get the advice you need at 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.”

Your 2016 Genesis’s oil should be changed according to Hyundai’s recommended oil change intervals. Check out mileage and month info for your Genesis in the above table. 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 vehicle, or see an excess amount of vehicle exhaust. You may also need an oil change more frequently than Hyundai recommends if you haul heavy loads, drive in dusty terrain, adventure off-road, or go at low speeds on long distance trips. In general, being extra-diligent about oil changes won’t damage 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.

What Type of Oil Does My Hyundai Genesis Need?

Whether it’s synthetic, conventional, or a blend of both — your local Firestone Complete Auto Care has the right oil for your Hyundai Genesis. Hyundai has specifically identified either synthetic or conventional as the ideal engine oil for your 2016 Genesis. Motor oil helps lubricate the engine’s moving parts, maintain proper engine temperature, and prevent harmful substances from accumulating in the engine. During your oil change service, a technician will change your Genesis's oil, replace and recycle the old oil and filter, check all of your other filters, top-off important fluids, and perform a courtesy inspection on your entire vehicle. You can drive easy knowing that we strive to do what's best for your vehicle and take into account your driving habits, weather and road conditions,

2016 Hyundai Genesis Oil Change Q&A

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Hyundai Genesis? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, these parts can grind together, overheat, and cause your Hyundai Genesis engine to fail. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • Can I change my Hyundai Genesis oil at home? 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 changed professionally can not only reduce the risk of something going wrong during the service, but also help your car perform down the road.
  • Why is my Hyundai Genesis spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? There could be an oil leak and your engine is burning oil. 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 worn cylinder walls.
