When to Change 2006 Hyundai Sonata Engine Oil

Looking for oil change recommendations for your 2006 Hyundai Sonata? Turn to Firestone Complete Auto Care! Our expertise goes beyond tires. We know the ins and outs of motor oil, too. 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.”

Your 2006 Sonata’s oil should be changed according to Hyundai’s recommended oil change intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above. Your Sonata may need an oil change right away if your check engine/oil change light is on, you hear knocking sounds coming from the engine, sense an oil smell in the cabin, or notice excess 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 areas, enjoy off-roading, 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.

Hyundai has recommendations as to whether conventional or synthetic oil is the best motor oil for your 2006 Sonata. Motor oil reduces friction between engine components, maintain proper engine temperature, and prevent harmful substances from accumulating in the engine. During your oil change service, one of our techs will change your Sonata’s oil, replace and recycle the old oil and filter, inspect the rest of your car’s filters, top-off important fluids, and perform a free inspection on the rest of your vehicle. You can rest assured knowing that we seek to do what’s best for your Sonata by considering your driving preferences, local climate,

2006 Hyundai Sonata Oil Change Questions

  • Should I check my Hyundai Sonata motor oil level? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, these parts can grind together, overheat, 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.
  • How hard is it to change Hyundai Sonata oil at home? Changing engine oil at home isn’t as simple as it’s made out to be. It requires special tools and old oil must be disposed of 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. Looks like it’s time for a professional to take a look. A leak can be caused by a variety of issues including faulty valve seals, damaged piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
