How Often to Get 2004 Hyundai Sonata Oil Changes

Not sure how or where to get your Hyundai Sonata’s oil changed? Look no further than Firestone Complete Auto Care! We're experts in more than tires. We know all about 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 changing your 2004 Sonata’s oil at regular intervals. Check out mileage and month info for your Sonata 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 knock knock knock coming from the engine, smell oil inside the vehicle, or see an excess amount of vehicle exhaust. You may also need an oil change more frequently than Hyundai recommends if you haul heavy loads, drive in dusty terrain, enjoy off-roading, or go long distances at low speeds. More frequent oil changes generally won't harm your Hyundai Sonata. In fact, every oil change is an opportunity to diagnose and treat any other issues, such as bad brakes or a failing battery.

2004 Hyundai Sonata Oil Change Q&A

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Hyundai Sonata? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, these parts can grind together, generate excess heat, and cause your Hyundai Sonata engine to fail. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • How hard is it to change Hyundai Sonata 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 Sonata spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? 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, blown piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
