When to Change 2021 Hyundai Santa Fe Engine Oil

Not sure how or where to get your Hyundai Santa Fe’s oil changed? Get the advice you need at Firestone Complete Auto Care! We're experts in more than tires. Oil and lube services are also our specialties. 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 having your 2021 Hyundai Santa Fe’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. See mileage and month specifics in the above table. No matter the mileage, your Santa Fe may need its oil changed ASAP if your check engine light is on, you hear engine knocking, smell oil inside the car, 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, drive in dusty terrain, adventure off-road, or go long distances at low speeds. 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.

What Type of Oil Does My Hyundai Santa Fe Need?

Whether you need high mileage oil, synthetic oil, or conventional oil, you'll find the right 2021 Hyundai Santa Fe motor oil at Firestone Complete Auto Care. Hyundai has specifically identified either synthetic or conventional as the best oil for 2021 Hyundai Santa Fe vehicles. This oil helps lubricate engine parts, 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 your used oil and oil filter, check all of your other filters, top-off important fluids, and visually inspect the rest of the vehicle. You can drive with confidence knowing that we look out for you and your Santa Fe by taking into account your driving style, weather and road conditions,

2021 Hyundai Santa Fe Oil Change Questions

  • What can low oil do to my Hyundai Santa Fe engine? Engine oil is a lubricant for the moving parts in your engine. If your oil runs low, these parts can grind together, overheat, and eventually lead to Hyundai Santa Fe engine failure. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • How hard is it to change Hyundai Santa Fe oil at home? Changing your own oil isn't as convenient as you might think. You’ll have to buy special tools and figure out a way to recycle the old oil properly. Getting a professional oil change reduces the risk of something going wrong during the service, but it’ll also help your car perform smoothly 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.
