Hyundai recommends having your 2017 Hyundai Santa Fe Sport’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. Check out mileage and month info for your Santa Fe Sport in the above table.

Oil Change Q&A for Your 2017 Hyundai Santa Fe Sport

  • What can low oil do to my Hyundai Santa Fe Sport engine? Engine oil is a lubricant for the moving parts in your engine. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, engine parts can grind together, generate excess heat, and eventually lead to Hyundai Santa Fe Sport engine failure. That’s why it’s best to check your oil levels and get your oil changed regularly.
  • How hard is it to change Hyundai Santa Fe Sport oil at home? Changing engine oil at home isn’t as simple as it’s made out to be. You’ll have to figure out how to properly dispose of the oil and buy special tools. 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 Santa Fe Sport exhaust smoke grayish 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, damaged piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
