1999 Hyundai Tiburon Oil Change Q&A

  • Should I check my Hyundai Tiburon motor oil level? Engine oil is a lubricant for the moving parts in your engine. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, these components can grind against each other, generate excess heat, and eventually lead to Hyundai Tiburon engine failure. That’s why you should check your oil and get it 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. 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 also with your vehicle down the road.
  • Why is my Hyundai Tiburon exhaust smoke grayish or blue? Your engine could be burning oil due to a leak. Time to have a qualified technician check things out. A leak can be caused by a variety of issues including faulty valve seals, fried piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
