Why regular oil changes are so important


Getting regular oil changes is easy and can extend the life of your car. Engine oil is one of the most important fluids in your car. It helps keep your engine running smoothly and lubricates engine components. As you drive, oil breaks down and is exposed to contaminants reducing its lubricating properties. Many people may be unaware when they should get their oil changed.

Many new and older-model Hyundai vehicles utilize an oil life monitoring sensor that alerts you when you need an oil change. However, a good rule of thumb for oil change intervals is every 5,000 miles. This may vary depending on the type of motor oil you use (synthetic vs. conventional oil, for instance) and could even be extended to 7,500 or 10,000 miles. Always check your owner's manual for recommended oil change times, or let an oil change shop near you tell you when your vehicle's ready for maintenance.


If your driving conditions match any shown below, then your frequency of oil changes should be increased: 

Repeated short distance trips

Like to the store or school and back

Driving in dusty conditions

Winds often move dust more than we realize

Corrosive driving condtions

Driving in areas where salt of other corrosive materials are being used

Extensive use of brakes

Been in rush-hour traffic lately?

Rugged conditions

Driving on rough or muddy roads

Inclines and elevation

Driving in mountainous areas

Idling and low speeds

Extended periods of idling or low speed operation. Again, rush hour?

Hot urban driving conditions

More than 50% driving in heavy city traffic in above 90 degree weather

Check you owner's manual to see what grade and viscosity of oil and change frequency your vehicle needs and occasionally confirm that the oil is at its optimal level.


Based on all your combined driving habits, you may need to change the oil more frequently (every 4,500-5,000 miles may be more appropriate than the normal 6,000-7,500 miles).

Oil Change Service FAQs


Q: What do I need to do when my "Change Engine Oil" message comes on?
A: As soon as your Hyundai alerts you, you'll want to schedule an oil change appointment at our Hyundai service center near Hoover, AL. We will handle changing your oil, resetting the system, and scheduling you for another appointment in a few months.

Q: What type of motor or engine oil does my Hyundai need?
A:  Always consult your vehicle's owner's manual or speak with your Hyundai oil change mechanic. Most newer Hyundai models will require full-synthetic motor oil, though the viscosity and type will vary by your engine and Hyundai model. Choosing the right Hyundai oil will improve performance, protect your engine and components, reduce oil consumption, and give you better fuel economy.

Q: How long can I go without changing my oil?
A: Back in the day, oil changes were required after 3,000 miles. But with advanced motor oil and full-synthetic oil, most new Hyundai vehicles can drive more than 5,000 miles before needing to change oil.

Q: Do I really need an oil filter?
A: Yes, it's highly recommended you replace your oil filter with an oil change. A clean oil filter will ensure the proper lubrication level throughout your engine. Plus, oil filters are very cheap and are included in our oil change price in Birmingham.
