We couldn’t put it better than our technician, Brianna. She likes to explain to customers that, “Oil is the blood of the engine. It’s the #1 thing you can do for your car.”

Hyundai recommends having your 2004 Hyundai Tiburon’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. See mileage and month specifics in the above table. No matter the mileage, your Tiburon may need its oil changed ASAP if your check engine light is on, you hear knocking sounds coming from the engine, smell oil inside the car, or see an excess amount of vehicle exhaust. You may also need an oil change more frequently than Hyundai recommends if you haul heavy loads, frequent dusty roads, go off-roading a lot, or go at low speeds on long distance trips. Generally, getting more frequent oil changes won’t hurt your Hyundai Tiburon. Each oil change is actually another chance to check and resolve other car issues, such as worn brake pads or tire treads.

2004 Hyundai Tiburon Oil Change Questions

  • What can low oil do to my Hyundai Tiburon engine? Engine oil is a lubricant for the moving parts in your engine. If your oil runs low, these components can grind against each other, generate too much heat, and cause your Tiburon’s engine to fail. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • How hard is it to change Hyundai Tiburon oil at home? Changing your own oil isn't as convenient as you might think. You’ll have to buy special tools and figure out a way to recycle the old oil properly. Getting a professional oil change reduces the risk of something going wrong during the service, but also help your car perform down the road.
  • Why is my Hyundai Tiburon 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 the result of worn valve seals, blown piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
