Hyundai Oil Change


The Hyundai's oil change is one of the simplest yet most important service visits that your vehicle needs. In addition to keeping the engine running smoothly by ensuring that its components are lubricated, this regular service gives your Hyundai service technicians a chance to check out the vehicle for developing problems, giving you the chance to fix them before they turn into big repairs.

Your Hyundai's oil change can be done separately or combined with other recommended services, such as tire rotations and scheduled maintenance visits. You will also have the choice of using real oil or paying slightly more for synthetic. Since synthetic oil holds up longer under high engine heat, it can go longer without being changed.

How Often Does My Hyundai Need an Oil Change?

Each model and year will have different factory recommended service intervals, based on direct research and testing that the Hyundai Motor Company has done on those specific vehicles. This includes how often to have the engine oil and oil filter changed. You can find the answer for your specific vehicle in the owner's manual, or your service advisor at Balise Hyundai of Fairfield will give you the answer.

Generally, oil changes are recommended every 3,000 to 10,000 miles, or at least every six months, if the car is driven average to long distances under normal conditions. More frequent oil changes are recommended for vehicles that are taken on frequent very short trips or driven under more severe conditions (pulling trailers, extreme weather, etc.). Driving for only short distances at a time is considered stressful for the vehicle, since the oil does not get hot enough during short trips to burn off condensation and fully lubricate engine parts. For that reason, even if you have only driven 1,000 miles in six months, you should take that car in for an oil change based on time instead of mileage, due to the strain on the engine with that style of driving.

How Much Will It Cost?

The question is not how much does a Hyundai oil change cost, but rather how much could it cost if it's not done. Not only is an oil change among the least expensive maintenance tasks, it's also one of the most critical, since improper lubrication can lead to breakdown of engine parts. And while the service technicians have the hood open and the car up on the lift, they can perform a multi-point inspection and nip maintenance issues in the bud. Balise Hyundai of Fairfield has regular specials and other promotions on Hyundai oil changes and other service needs to make maintenance even more affordable.
