Hyundai recommends having your 2013 Hyundai Santa Fe’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. Check out mileage and month info for your Santa Fe 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 car, or see an excess amount of vehicle exhaust.

Oil Change Q&A for Your 2013 Hyundai Santa Fe

  • Should I check my Hyundai Santa Fe motor oil level? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If you're low or out of oil, these parts can grind together, generate excess heat, and eventually lead to Hyundai Santa Fe engine failure. 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 help your car perform down the road.
  • Why is my Hyundai exhaust smoke gray or blue? You could have an oil leak and have a case of burning oil. Time to have a qualified technician check things out. The leak could be caused by several issues like leaking valve seals, blown piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
