When to Change 2020 Hyundai Kona Electric Engine Oil

Not sure how or where to get your Hyundai Kona Electric’s oil changed? Get the advice you need at Firestone Complete Auto Care! We're experts in more than tires. We know all about 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.”

Hyundai recommends having your 2020 Hyundai Kona Electric’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. See mileage and month specifics in the above table. Outside of Hyundai-recommended oil change intervals, your Kona Electric may need an oil change if your check engine light is on, you hear knocking sounds coming from the engine, smell oil inside the car, 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, frequent dusty roads, adventure off-road, or go at low speeds on long distance trips. Generally, getting more frequent oil changes won’t hurt your Hyundai Kona Electric. In fact, every oil change is an opportunity to diagnose and treat any other issues, such as bad brakes or a failing battery.

Oil Change Q&A for Your 2020 Hyundai Kona Electric

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Hyundai Kona Electric? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If your oil runs low, engine parts can grind together, generate too much heat, and cause your Kona Electric’s engine to fail. That’s why you’re better off checking your oil levels and investing in routine lube services.
  • How hard is it to change Hyundai Kona Electric oil at home? Changing engine oil at home isn’t as simple as it’s made out to be. You’ll have to buy special tools and figure out a way to recycle the old oil properly. Getting a professional oil change reduces the risk of something going wrong during the service, but also help your car perform down the road.
  • Why is my Hyundai exhaust smoke gray 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.
