2021 Hyundai Kona Electric Oil Change

When to Change 2021 Hyundai Kona Electric Engine Oil

Looking for oil change recommendations for your 2021 Hyundai Kona Electric? 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 2021 Hyundai Kona Electric’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. See mileage and month specifics in the above table. Your Kona Electric may need an oil change right away if your check engine/oil change light is on, you hear knocking sounds coming from the engine, sense an oil smell in the cabin, 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 terrain, go off-roading a lot, or go long distances at low speeds. More frequent oil changes generally won't harm your Hyundai Kona Electric. In fact, more frequent oil changes give our technicians more opportunities to catch and alert you to any issues, like worn brake pads or a weak battery.

What’s the Right Type of Oil for 2021 Hyundai Kona Electric?

Whether you need high mileage oil, synthetic oil, or conventional oil, you'll find the right 2021 Hyundai Kona Electric motor oil at Firestone Complete Auto Care. Hyundai has recommendations as to whether conventional or synthetic oil is the best oil for 2021 Hyundai Kona Electric vehicles. Motor oil helps lubricate the engine’s moving parts, keep the engine cool, and keep harmful substances from building up inside the engine. In an oil change service, an auto technician will change your Kona Electric’s oil, replace and recycle your used oil and oil filter, inspect 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 Kona Electric by taking into account your driving habits, and odometer.

2021 Hyundai Kona Electric Oil Change Questions

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Hyundai Kona Electric? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If you're low or out of oil, engine parts can grind together, generate excess heat, and cause your Hyundai Kona Electric engine to fail. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • Can I change my Hyundai oil on my own? 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 it’ll also help your car perform smoothly 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. Time to have a qualified technician check things out. The leak could be caused by several issues like leaking valve seals, damaged piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
