How Often to Get 2021 Hyundai Tucson Oil Changes

Not sure how or where to get your Hyundai Tucson’s oil changed? Get the advice you need at Firestone Complete Auto Care! We're experts in more than tires. Oil and lube services are also our specialties. 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 2021 Hyundai Tucson’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above. Your Tucson may need an oil change right away if your check engine/oil change light is on, you hear knock knock knock coming from the engine, smell oil inside the car, 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 terrain, go off-roading a lot, or drive at low speeds for long distances. Generally, getting more frequent oil changes won’t hurt your Hyundai Tucson. In fact, every oil change is an opportunity to diagnose and treat any other issues, such as bad brakes or a failing battery.

Oil Change Q&A for Your 2021 Hyundai Tucson

  • What can low oil do to my Hyundai Tucson engine? 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, overheat, and cause your Tucson’s engine to fail. That’s why you’re better off checking your oil levels and investing in routine lube services.
  • Can I change my Hyundai Tucson oil at home? Changing your own oil isn't as convenient as you might 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 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. Time to have a qualified technician check things out. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, fried piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
