After all, "Oil is the blood of the engine. It's the #1 thing you can do for your car," says our maintenance technician, Brianna.

Your 2023 Santa Cruz’s oil should be changed according to Hyundai’s recommended oil change intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above. No matter the mileage, your Santa Cruz may need its oil changed ASAP if your check engine light is on, you hear knock knock knock coming from the engine, sense an oil smell in the cabin, or notice an unusual amount of exhaust.

In general, being extra-diligent about oil changes won’t damage 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.

2023 Hyundai Santa Cruz Oil Change Q&A

  • What can low oil do to my Hyundai Santa Cruz engine? Engine oil is a lubricant for the moving parts in your engine. If your oil runs low, these components can grind against each other, generate excess heat, and cause your Hyundai Santa Cruz 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 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. Getting a professional oil change reduces the risk of something going wrong during the service, but also with your vehicle down the road.
  • Why is my Hyundai exhaust smoke gray or blue? There could be an oil leak and your engine is burning oil. It may be time for a pro to take a look. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, damaged piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
