When to Change 2018 Hyundai Santa Fe Sport Engine Oil

Need more info about 2018 Hyundai Santa Fe Sport oil changes? Turn to Firestone Complete Auto Care! We are experts in car care — not just 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 changing your 2018 Santa Fe Sport’s oil at regular intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above. No matter the mileage, your Santa Fe Sport may need its oil changed ASAP if your check engine 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, frequent dusty roads, go off-roading a lot, or drive at low speeds for long distances. In general, being extra-diligent about oil changes won’t damage your Hyundai Santa Fe Sport. Each oil change is actually another chance to check and resolve other car issues, such as worn brake pads or tire treads.

What’s the Right Type of Oil for 2018 Hyundai Santa Fe Sport?

Whether it’s synthetic, conventional, or a blend of both — your local Firestone Complete Auto Care has the right oil for your Hyundai Santa Fe Sport. Hyundai has recommendations as to whether conventional or synthetic oil is the best motor oil for your 2018 Santa Fe Sport. Motor oil helps lubricate the engine’s moving parts, keep the engine cool, and prevent the build-up of harmful substances within the engine. During an oil change, a technician will change your Santa Fe Sport's oil, replace and recycle your used oil and filter, inspect the rest of your car’s filters, top-off essential fluids, and perform a courtesy inspection on your entire vehicle. You can rest assured knowing that we seek to do what’s best for your Santa Fe Sport by considering your driving style, weather and road conditions,

2018 Hyundai Santa Fe Sport Oil Change Q&A

  • Should I check my Hyundai Santa Fe Sport motor oil level? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If you're low or out of oil, these parts can grind together, generate too much heat, and cause your Hyundai Santa Fe Sport engine to fail. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • Can I change my Hyundai Santa Fe Sport oil at home? First off, changing your own oil isn’t as easy as you’d think. 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? Your engine could be burning oil due to a leak. It may be time for a pro to take a look. A leak can be caused by a variety of issues including faulty valve seals, fried piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
