All internal combustion engines require oil to lubricate their moving parts, to keep the engine functioning properly. Your Hyundai has guidelines to follow that ensure your oil is changed before it loses its viscosity. Spokane Hyundai is your Hyundai oil change specialist that will add the exact grade of oil your vehicle has been manufactured to run best on. Contact us for an appointment if you feel you need an oil change.
Signs Your Hyundai Needs an Oil Change
Once a Oil Stains Under Your Car or Every 20,000km
As your vehicle ages the gaskets and seals begin to wear and the internal oil pressure forces leaks through these openings. If a small leak is ignored it will inevitably become a larger leak which will reduce oil pressure in the engine, causing potentially extensive damage. If you have observed an oil leak from your vehicle, our Spokane Hyundai service specialists will diagnose the problem and present the best options to repair the issue.
Low Oil Pressure Light
Your engine requires proper oil pressure in order for the components to stay properly lubricated. Deficient oil pressure increases the friction during engine functioning, risking permanent damage. Low oil pressure can be caused by the level being too low or by malfunctions of the oil pump or engine itself. If your dashboard oil pressure light comes on and stays on, or if it comes on while the engine is running (even if it turns off quickly), your engine requires immediate attention. The Spokane Hyundai service team will assess the issue and present you with the most cost-effective options to repair the problem.
Driving Habits and Conditions That Necessitate Oil Regular Changes
While there are surefire symptoms of needing an oil change, the habits you drive your vehicle with as well as the conditions most often driven in are a guide as well. If you regularly drive your Hyundai with some of the following conditions, you will need to change oil on a regular basis:
Repeated short distance trips, for example to the store or school and back
Driving in dusty conditions, which can cause dust to mix with oil in the engine
Driving on rough or muddy roads
Driving in mountainous areas
Extended periods of idling or low speed operation
Prolonged driving in extreme humidity or cold temperatures
More than 50% driving in heavy city traffic with high humidity
