When to Change 2012 Hyundai Veloster Engine Oil

Looking for oil change recommendations for your 2012 Hyundai Veloster? Look no further than Firestone Complete Auto Care! Our expertise goes beyond tires. We know the ins and outs of 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 changing your 2012 Veloster’s oil at regular intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above. Your Veloster 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, sense an oil smell in the cabin, 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, drive in dusty terrain, enjoy off-roading, or go long distances at low speeds. In general, being extra-diligent about oil changes won’t damage your Hyundai Veloster. 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 Veloster Need?

Whether you need high mileage oil, synthetic oil, or conventional oil, you'll find the right 2012 Hyundai Veloster motor oil at Firestone Complete Auto Care. Hyundai has specifically identified either synthetic or conventional as the best motor oil for your 2012 Veloster. Motor oil reduces friction between engine components, regulate engine temperature, and prevent harmful substances from accumulating in the engine. During your oil change service, a technician will change your Veloster's oil, replace and recycle your used oil and oil filter, inspect the rest of your car’s filters, refill vital car fluids, and perform a courtesy inspection on your entire vehicle. You can drive with confidence knowing that we look out for you and your Veloster by taking into account your driving preferences, and odometer.

2012 Hyundai Veloster Oil Change Q&A

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Hyundai Veloster? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If your oil runs low, these components can grind against each other, generate excess heat, and cause your Hyundai Veloster engine to fail. 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? 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 professionally changed reduces the chances of something going wrong with the oil change, but it’ll also help your car perform smoothly down the road.
  • Why is my Hyundai Veloster spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? Your engine could be burning oil due to a leak. It may be time for a pro to take a look. The leak could be caused by several issues like leaking valve seals, fried piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
