So, when do you need a Hyundai oil change?

Knowing when you need a Hyundai oil change is essential to keeping your Hyundai Tucson SUV or Elantra Sedan always running smooth and safe on the roads in and around Schaumburg.

An oil change is one of the most innate and numerous services for your automobile. Hyundai recommends getting your Hyundai Santa Fe oil & filter changed every 3,000-5,000 miles for conventional oil. Although it is a good idea to confirm the schedule for your specific Hyundai model in your owner’s manual.

However, there are a few factors that can affect how often your oil will need to be changed. Some of these include:

  • Sporty driving style
  • Off-road driving
  • Heavy towing
  • Racing

If any of these apply to you, check in with our Service Center. We’ll be happy to arrange an oil change schedule that fits with your driving style.

How much does a Hyundai oil change cost?

The average cost for a Hyundai Elantra oil change is between $116 and $130. Labor costs are estimated between $48 and $60 while parts are priced between $69 and $70. This range does not include taxes and fees and does not factor in your unique location. Related repairs may also be needed.  Each Hyundai model does have different costs, so we also recommend having a conversation with a Patrick Hyundai Service Advisor for pricing based on your model.

As of February 2020, new Hyundai models come with complimentary maintenance (except for electric vehicles and fuel cell electric vehicles) plus tire rotation at normal factory scheduled intervals for 3 years or 36,000 miles, whichever comes first. For models outside this coverage, we again recommend having a conversation with a Patrick Hyundai Service Advisor for pricing based on your model.

What kind of oil does a Hyundai take?

Recommended oil is the synthetic kind, as this benefits drivers far more than conventional oil. Finally, here are the recommended oil types for the Elantra (either conventional or synthetic): 5W-20. 5W-30 here are the differences.

5W-20 – When used in a vehicle’s engine, 5W-20 oil creates less friction due to its thinner viscosity, meaning it causes less drag across engine parts like the crankshaft, valvetrain, and pistons. This can provide a slight bump in fuel efficiency.

5W-30 – 5W-30 motor oil is one of the most common viscosity grades and is available from Castrol in advanced full synthetic, premium full synthetic and synthetic blend options.

This is where you belong, no matter how many miles your Hyundai has traveled to get here. At Patrick Hyundai, you’ll benefit from the expertise of our Hyundai Trained Technicians, the quality of Original Hyundai Parts, and transparent, up-front pricing that fits you and your Hyundai.

Additional tips:

  • Whenever you get your oil changed, your oil filter should be replaced as well. If you plan on changing your Hyundai oil yourself, visit our Parts Center to pick up the correct oil filter
  • Check your owner’s manual to find out whether your Hyundai requires synthetic or conventional oil
  • Oil viscosities may vary by model. In simple terms, the viscosity rating of oil is how well the oil performs at low and high temperatures. The idea is to keep the oil from thinning too much, thus creating a thicker, better barrier over the moving parts of your engine. Heat is what makes oil thin out, so the higher the second number of the oil, the more resistant to thinning the oil is. So, a 10W-40 oil is more resistant to thinning than a 10W-30 oil is. Though these are important to keep in mind, make sure to follow the owner’s manual for your vehicle to get the right viscosity
