When to Change 2013 Hyundai Veloster Engine Oil

Looking for oil change recommendations for your 2013 Hyundai Veloster? Get the advice you need at Firestone Complete Auto Care! We are experts in car care — not just tires. We know all about motor oil, too. 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 2013 Hyundai Veloster’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. See mileage and month specifics in the above table. 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, smell oil inside the vehicle, 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 long distances at low speeds. More frequent oil changes generally won't harm 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.

2013 Hyundai Veloster Oil Change Q&A

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Hyundai Veloster? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If you're low or out of oil, these parts can grind together, overheat, and eventually lead to Hyundai Veloster engine failure. That’s why you’re better off checking your oil levels and investing in routine lube services.
  • Can I change my Hyundai Veloster 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 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 Veloster exhaust smoke grayish or blue? You could have an oil leak and have a case of burning oil. Looks like it’s time for a professional to take a look. A leak can be caused by a variety of issues including faulty valve seals, damaged piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
