Oil Change Q&A for Your 1998 Hyundai Tiburon

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Hyundai Tiburon? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, these components can grind against each other, overheat, and cause your Hyundai Tiburon engine to fail. That’s why it’s best to check your oil levels and get your oil changed regularly.
  • How hard is it to change Hyundai Tiburon 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 Tiburon exhaust smoke grayish or blue? There could be an oil leak and your engine is burning oil. Looks like it’s time for a professional to take a look. A leak can be caused by a variety of issues including faulty valve seals, blown piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
