How Often to Change 2001 Hyundai Tiburon Oil

Not sure how or where to get your Hyundai Tiburon’s oil changed? Get the advice you need at Firestone Complete Auto Care! Our expertise goes beyond tires. Oil and lube services are also our specialties. After all, "Oil is the blood of the engine. It's the #1 thing you can do for your car," says our maintenance technician, Brianna.

Hyundai recommends having your 2001 Hyundai Tiburon’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. See mileage and month specifics in the above table. Outside of Hyundai-recommended oil change intervals, your Tiburon may need an oil change if your check engine light is on, you hear knock knock knock coming from the engine, sense an oil smell in the cabin, or see an excess amount of vehicle exhaust. You might need an oil change more frequently than what’s recommended by Hyundai if you regularly haul heavy loads, frequent dusty roads, go off-roading a lot, or drive at low speeds for long distances. More frequent oil changes generally won't harm your Hyundai Tiburon. 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 Tiburon?

Whether it’s synthetic, conventional, or a blend of both — your local Firestone Complete Auto Care has the right oil for your Hyundai Tiburon. Hyundai has recommendations as to whether conventional or synthetic oil is the best oil for 2001 Hyundai Tiburon vehicles. This oil helps lubricate engine parts, regulate engine temperature, and prevent the build-up of harmful substances within the engine. During an oil change, one of our techs will change your Tiburon’s oil, replace and recycle your used oil and oil filter, inspect all of your other filters, top-off essential fluids, and visually inspect the rest of the vehicle. You can drive easy knowing that we strive to do what's best for your vehicle and take into account your driving preferences, and odometer.

Oil Change Q&A for Your 2001 Hyundai Tiburon

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Hyundai Tiburon? Engine oil is a lubricant for the moving parts in your engine. If your oil runs low, these parts can grind together, overheat, and eventually lead to Hyundai Tiburon engine failure. That’s why it’s best to check your oil levels and get your oil changed regularly.
  • Can I change my Hyundai oil on my own? 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 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 Tiburon exhaust smoke grayish or blue? There could be an oil leak and your engine is burning oil. It may be time for a pro to take a look. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, blown piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
