How Often to Get 2013 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! Our expertise goes beyond tires. Oil and lube services are also our specialties. 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.”

Your 2013 Sonata’s oil should be changed according to Hyundai’s recommended oil change intervals. See mileage and month specifics in the above table. 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, 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, enjoy off-roading, or drive at low speeds for long distances. More frequent oil changes generally won't harm 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 you need high mileage oil, synthetic oil, or conventional oil, you'll find the right 2013 Hyundai Sonata motor oil at Firestone Complete Auto Care. Hyundai has specifically identified either synthetic or conventional as the ideal engine oil for your 2013 Sonata. This oil helps lubricate engine parts, regulate engine temperature, and prevent harmful substances from accumulating in the engine. In an oil change service, one of our techs will change your Sonata’s oil, replace and recycle your used oil and oil filter, inspect all of your other filters, refill vital car 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 Sonata by considering your driving style, weather and road conditions,

2013 Hyundai Sonata Oil Change Questions

  • What can low oil do to my Hyundai Sonata engine? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, engine parts can grind together, generate too much heat, and eventually lead to Hyundai Sonata engine failure. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • How hard is it to change Hyundai Sonata oil at home? First off, changing your own oil isn’t as easy as you’d think. 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 help your car perform down the road.
  • Why is my Hyundai exhaust smoke gray or blue? Your engine could be burning oil due to a leak. Time to have a qualified technician check things out. A leak can be caused by a variety of issues including faulty valve seals, fried piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
