When to Change 2009 Hyundai Tucson Engine Oil

Looking for oil change recommendations for your 2009 Hyundai Tucson? Turn to Firestone Complete Auto Care! Our expertise goes beyond tires. We know all about motor oil, too. After all, like our maintenance technician Brianna says, “Oil is the blood of the engine. It’s the #1 thing you can do for your car.”

Hyundai recommends having your 2009 Hyundai Tucson’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. Check out mileage and month info for your Tucson in the above table. Your Tucson may need an oil change right away if your check engine/oil change light is on, you hear engine knocking, smell oil inside the vehicle, 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, drive in dusty areas, go off-roading a lot, or go long distances at low speeds. Generally, getting more frequent oil changes won’t hurt your Hyundai Tucson. Each oil change is actually another chance to check and resolve other car issues, such as worn brake pads or tire treads.

What Type of Oil Does My Hyundai Tucson Need?

Whether it’s synthetic, conventional, or a blend of both — your local Firestone Complete Auto Care has the right oil for your Hyundai Tucson. Hyundai has specifically identified either synthetic or conventional as the best oil for 2009 Hyundai Tucson vehicles. This oil helps lubricate engine parts, keep the engine cool, and keep harmful substances from building up inside the engine. In an oil change service, one of our techs will change your Tucson’s oil, replace and recycle your used oil and filter, inspect all of your other filters, top-off essential fluids, and perform a courtesy inspection on your entire vehicle. You can drive with confidence knowing that we look out for you and your Tucson by taking into account your driving style, and odometer.

2009 Hyundai Tucson Oil Change Q&A

  • Should I check my Hyundai Tucson motor oil level? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If your oil runs low, engine parts can grind together, generate excess heat, and eventually lead to Hyundai Tucson engine failure. That’s why it’s best to check your oil levels and get your oil changed regularly.
  • How hard is it to change Hyundai Tucson oil at home? First off, changing your own oil isn’t as easy as you’d think. It requires special tools and old oil must be disposed of properly. 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 exhaust smoke gray 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. The leak could be caused by several issues like leaking valve seals, damaged piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
