Oil Changes for 2021 Hyundai Sonata

How Often to Change 2021 Hyundai Sonata Oil

Need more info about 2021 Hyundai Sonata oil changes? Get the advice you need at Firestone Complete Auto Care! We are experts in car care — not just 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 2021 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 engine knocking, sense an oil smell in the cabin, or notice an unusual amount of 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 at low speeds on long distance trips. 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.

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

Whether you need high mileage oil, synthetic oil, or conventional oil, you'll find the right 2021 Hyundai Sonata motor oil at Firestone Complete Auto Care. Hyundai has most likely outlined either synthetic or conventional as the best motor oil for your 2021 Sonata.

In an oil change service, one of our techs will change your Sonata’s oil, replace and recycle the old 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 style, and odometer.

2021 Hyundai Sonata Oil Change Q&A

  • What can low oil do to my Hyundai Sonata engine? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, engine parts can grind together, overheat, and cause your Hyundai Sonata engine to fail. That’s why you’re better off checking your oil levels and investing in routine lube services.
  • 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 figure out how to properly dispose of the oil and buy special tools. 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 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 caused by several issues like leaking valve seals, damaged piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
