How Often to Get 2014 Hyundai Sonata Oil Changes

Need more info about 2014 Hyundai Sonata oil changes? Turn to 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.”

Your 2014 Sonata’s oil should be changed according to Hyundai’s recommended oil change 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 knocking sounds coming from the engine, smell oil inside the car, or notice an unusual amount of exhaust. You may also need an oil change more frequently than Hyundai recommends if you haul heavy loads, drive in dusty areas, adventure off-road, or drive at low speeds for long distances. In general, being extra-diligent about oil changes won’t damage 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.

2014 Hyundai Sonata Oil Change Questions

  • Should I check my Hyundai Sonata motor oil level? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If your oil runs low, engine parts can grind together, generate too much heat, and cause your Sonata’s engine to fail. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • Can I change my Hyundai oil on my own? First off, changing your own oil isn’t as easy as you’d think. It requires special tools and old oil must be disposed of properly. Having your oil changed professionally can not only reduce 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? You could have an oil leak and have a case of burning oil. It may be time for a pro to take a look. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, blown piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
