When to Change 2016 Hyundai Veloster Engine Oil

Need more info about 2016 Hyundai Veloster oil changes? Get the advice you need at Firestone Complete Auto Care! We're experts in more than tires. We know the ins and outs of motor oil, too. 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 changing your 2016 Veloster’s oil 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 knocking sounds coming from the engine, smell oil inside the car, or notice an unusual amount of 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 go at low speeds on long distance trips. Generally, getting more frequent oil changes won’t hurt your Hyundai Veloster. In fact, every oil change is an opportunity to diagnose and treat any other issues, such as bad brakes or a failing battery.

2016 Hyundai Veloster Oil Change Questions

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Hyundai Veloster? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If you're low or out of oil, these components can grind against each other, generate too much heat, and cause your Veloster’s engine to fail. That’s why you’re better off checking your oil levels and investing in routine lube services.
  • How hard is it to change Hyundai Veloster 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. Getting a professional oil change reduces the risk of something going wrong during the service, but it’ll also help your car perform smoothly down the road.
  • Why is my Hyundai exhaust smoke gray or blue? You could have an oil leak and have a case of burning oil. It may be time for a pro to take a look. A leak can be caused by a variety of issues including faulty valve seals, fried piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
