When to Change 2020 Hyundai Veloster Engine Oil

Need more info about 2020 Hyundai Veloster oil changes? Turn to 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 2020 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 engine knocking, smell oil inside the car, or notice excess vehicle exhaust. You may also need an oil change more frequently than Hyundai recommends if you haul heavy loads, drive in dusty areas, go off-roading a lot, or go at low speeds on long distance trips. In general, being extra-diligent about oil changes won’t damage your Hyundai Veloster. In fact, more frequent oil changes give our technicians more opportunities to catch and alert you to any issues, like worn brake pads or a weak battery.

What Kind of Oil Should I Get for My Hyundai Veloster?

Your local Firestone Complete Auto Care has the right 2020 Hyundai Veloster motor oil: either synthetic or conventional. Hyundai has recommendations as to whether conventional or synthetic oil is the best oil for 2020 Hyundai Veloster vehicles. Motor oil reduces friction between engine components, maintain proper engine temperature, and keep harmful substances from building up inside the engine. In an oil change service, a technician will change your Veloster's oil, replace and recycle the old oil and filter, inspect all of your other filters, refill vital car fluids, and visually inspect the rest of the vehicle. You can drive with confidence knowing that we look out for you and your Veloster by taking into account your driving preferences, and mileage.

Oil Change Q&A for Your 2020 Hyundai Veloster

  • Should I check my Hyundai Veloster motor oil level? Engine oil is a lubricant for the moving parts in your engine. If your oil runs low, engine parts can grind together, generate excess heat, and cause your Veloster’s engine to fail. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • Can I change my Hyundai oil on my own? Changing your own oil isn't as convenient as you might 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 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 the result of worn valve seals, blown piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
