How Often to Get 1994 Hyundai Sonata Oil Changes

Not sure how or where to get your Hyundai Sonata’s oil changed? Get the advice you need at Firestone Complete Auto Care! We're experts in more than tires. We know the ins and outs of motor oil, too. We couldn’t put it better than our technician, Brianna. She likes to explain to customers that, “Oil is the blood of the engine. It’s the #1 thing you can do for your car.”

Hyundai recommends having your 1994 Hyundai Sonata’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. See mileage and month specifics in the above table. Outside of Hyundai-recommended oil change intervals, your Sonata may need an oil change if your check engine light is on, you hear engine knocking, smell oil inside the vehicle, 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, adventure off-road, or go long distances at low speeds. Generally, getting more frequent oil changes won’t hurt your Hyundai Sonata. Each oil change is actually another chance to check and resolve other car issues, such as worn brake pads or tire treads.

What Type of Oil Does My Hyundai Sonata Need?

Whether it’s synthetic, conventional, or a blend of both — your local Firestone Complete Auto Care has the right oil for your Hyundai Sonata. Hyundai has most likely outlined either synthetic or conventional as the best motor oil for your 1994 Sonata. This oil helps lubricate engine parts, keep the engine cool, and prevent harmful substances from accumulating in the engine. During an oil change, one of our techs will change your Sonata’s oil, replace and recycle your used oil and filter, inspect all of your other filters, top-off important fluids, and perform a courtesy inspection on your entire vehicle. You can drive with confidence knowing that we look out for you and your Sonata by taking into account your driving habits, weather and road conditions,

1994 Hyundai Sonata Oil Change Q&A

  • What can low oil do to my Hyundai Sonata engine? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If you're low or out of oil, engine parts can grind together, generate too much heat, and eventually lead to Hyundai Sonata engine failure. That’s why it’s best to check your oil levels and get your oil changed regularly.
  • Can I change my Hyundai oil on my own? 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 changed professionally can not only reduce the risk of something going wrong during the service, but also with your vehicle down the road.
  • Why is my Hyundai Sonata exhaust smoke grayish or blue? Your engine could be burning oil due to a leak. Time to have a qualified technician check things out. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, damaged piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
