Hyundai recommends changing your 2007 Santa Fe’s oil at regular intervals. See mileage and month specifics in the above table. Outside of Hyundai-recommended oil change intervals, your Santa Fe may need an oil change if your check engine light is on, you hear engine knocking, smell oil inside the vehicle, or notice excess vehicle exhaust.

More frequent oil changes generally won't harm your Hyundai Santa Fe. 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.

Oil Change Q&A for Your 2007 Hyundai Santa Fe

  • Should I check my Hyundai Santa Fe motor oil level? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, engine parts can grind together, generate excess heat, and cause your Hyundai Santa Fe engine to fail. That’s why you’re better off checking your oil levels and investing in routine lube services.
  • How hard is it to change Hyundai Santa Fe oil at home? Changing engine oil at home isn’t as simple as it’s made out to be. You’ll have to buy special tools and figure out a way to recycle the old oil properly. Having your oil professionally changed reduces the chances of something going wrong with the oil change, but also with your vehicle down the road.
  • Why is my Hyundai Santa Fe exhaust smoke grayish 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. A leak can be caused by a variety of issues including faulty valve seals, fried piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
