How Often to Get 2022 Hyundai Santa Cruz Oil Changes

Looking for oil change recommendations for your 2022 Hyundai Santa Cruz? Turn to 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.”

Your 2022 Santa Cruz’s oil should be changed according to Hyundai’s recommended oil change intervals. See mileage and month specifics in the above table. Your Santa Cruz may need an oil change right away if your check engine/oil change light is on, you hear knock knock knock 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, drive in dusty areas, adventure off-road, or go long distances at low speeds. Generally, getting more frequent oil changes won’t hurt your Hyundai Santa Cruz. In fact, every oil change is an opportunity to diagnose and treat any other issues, such as bad brakes or a failing battery.

2022 Hyundai Santa Cruz Oil Change Q&A

  • What can low oil do to my Hyundai Santa Cruz engine? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If you're low or out of oil, these parts can grind together, overheat, and cause your Hyundai Santa Cruz engine to fail. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • How hard is it to change Hyundai Santa Cruz oil at home? Changing your own oil isn't as convenient as you might think. You’ll have to buy special tools and figure out a way to recycle the old oil 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? Your engine could be burning oil due to a leak. Looks like it’s time for a professional to take a look. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, fried piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
