2020 Hyundai Sonata Oil Change Service

How Often to Change 2020 Hyundai Sonata Oil

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. 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.”

Your 2020 Sonata’s oil should be changed according to Hyundai’s recommended oil change intervals. See mileage and month specifics in the above table. No matter the mileage, your Sonata may need its oil changed ASAP if your check engine light is on, you hear knocking sounds coming from the engine, sense an oil smell in the cabin, or notice excess vehicle exhaust. You may also need an oil change more frequently than Hyundai recommends if you haul heavy loads, frequent dusty roads, go off-roading a lot, or drive at low speeds for long distances. In general, being extra-diligent about oil changes won’t damage 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.

What Kind of Oil Should I Get for My Hyundai Sonata?

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 recommendations as to whether conventional or synthetic oil is the best oil for 2020 Hyundai Sonata vehicles. Motor oil reduces friction between engine components, regulate engine temperature, and prevent the build-up of harmful substances within the engine. In an oil change service, a technician 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, and odometer.

2020 Hyundai Sonata Oil Change Questions

  • Should I check my Hyundai Sonata motor oil level? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If you're low or out of oil, engine parts can grind together, generate too much heat, and cause your Hyundai Sonata engine to fail. That’s why it’s best to check your oil levels and get your oil changed regularly.
  • Can I change my 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 it’ll also help your car perform smoothly down the road.
  • Why is my Hyundai Sonata exhaust smoke grayish or blue? There could be an oil leak and your engine is burning oil. Time to have a qualified technician check things out. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, blown piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
