An oil change is one of those routine car services that you shouldn’t even have to think about. Ideally, you’ll be able to head to a mechanic appointment-free and be in and out in less than an hour. This is the kind of oil change service that we aim for here in the Hyundai service center at Sansone Hyundai. Our team of seasoned mechanics is ready to get your car back into top condition with a quick and thorough oil change.
How Often Do You Need to Get Your Oil Changed?
There is no hard and fast rule about how often your oil should be changed. Check your owner’s manual for recommendations on the oil change schedule of your specific make and model. Some engines today are designed for oil changes every 10,000 to 15,000 miles, while older engines will require more frequent oil changes. The more often you drive, the more often you need to get your oil changed.
Can I Change My Own Oil?
Yes, but there are a lot of risks involved. These risks include using the wrong motor oil, overlooking an oil leak, or cross-threading the filter. Oil changes are a task best left to experts like those found in our Hyundai service center.
What Happens If I Don’t Get My Oil Changed?
When a new Hyundai car tries to run without oil, things will get hot. Without the lubrication that oil provides, all of your engine’s metal parts will start rubbing together, generating a high amount of heat. Over time, this will cause your engine to seize up and fail.
