When to Change 2017 Hyundai Santa Fe Engine Oil

Looking for oil change recommendations for your 2017 Hyundai Santa Fe? Turn to Firestone Complete Auto Care! Our expertise goes beyond tires. Oil and lube services are also our specialties. 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 2017 Santa Fe’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 Fe may need its oil changed ASAP if your check engine light is on, you hear knock knock knock coming from the engine, smell oil inside the car, or notice an unusual amount of exhaust. You may also need an oil change more frequently than Hyundai recommends if you haul heavy loads, drive in dusty areas, enjoy off-roading, or drive at low speeds for long distances. Generally, getting more frequent oil changes won’t hurt your Hyundai Santa Fe. In fact, every oil change is an opportunity to diagnose and treat any other issues, such as bad brakes or a failing battery.

What Kind of Oil Should I Get for My Hyundai Santa Fe?

Whether you need high mileage oil, synthetic oil, or conventional oil, you'll find the right 2017 Hyundai Santa Fe motor oil at Firestone Complete Auto Care. Hyundai has most likely outlined either synthetic or conventional as the best oil for 2017 Hyundai Santa Fe vehicles. Motor oil reduces friction between engine components, maintain proper engine temperature, and prevent harmful substances from accumulating in the engine. During an oil change, one of our techs will change your Santa Fe’s oil, replace and recycle the old oil and filter, inspect all of your other 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 by considering your driving habits, weather and road conditions,

2017 Hyundai Santa Fe Oil Change Questions

  • What can low oil do to my Hyundai Santa Fe engine? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If your oil runs low, engine parts can grind together, overheat, and cause your Santa Fe’s engine to fail. That’s why you’re better off checking your oil levels and investing in routine lube services.
  • Can I change my 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 figure out how to properly dispose of the oil and buy special tools. 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 Santa Fe spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? 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, fried piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
