1997 Hyundai Tiburon Oil Change Q&A

  • What can low oil do to my Hyundai Tiburon engine? Engine oil is a lubricant for the moving parts in your engine. If you're low or out of oil, these components can grind against each other, generate too much heat, and cause your Tiburon’s 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 Tiburon oil at home? Changing engine oil at home isn’t as simple as it’s made out to be. You’ll have to figure out how to properly dispose of the oil and buy special tools. Getting a professional oil change reduces 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 exhaust smoke gray or blue? Your engine could be burning oil due to a leak. Looks like it’s time for a professional to take a look. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, fried piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
  • Where can I get Hyundai Tiburon oil changes? Turn to Firestone Complete Auto Care for Hyundai Tiburon oil changes. In addition to changing your oil, our experienced technicians also perform oil filter replacements, troubleshoot oil leaks, and suggest the correct oil to help keep your engine performing its best.
  • Why is my Hyundai Tiburon oil light illuminated? If you’re overdue for an oil change, it might trigger your Hyundai Tiburon oil change reminder light. If the oil pressure light is illuminated, it could be due to low engine oil, a failing oil pump, a malfunctioning oil pressure sensor, or a clogged oil filter.
  • Does my Tiburon's oil filter need to be changed during my oil change? You should replace your Hyundai Tiburon during each oil change. The filter captures debris and contaminants to help keep your oil clean, which means the filter gets dirty. If you skip replacing the filter, you’ll contaminate your new oil with the dirty filter.
