Engine oil question

Fri Sep 07, 2018 8:36 pm


When I hit 30,000 miles I’ll no longer have dealer included oil and filter changes at no charge.

I like working on my cars and have always performed routine and preventative maintenance myself.

No idea what’s involved with changing the oil and filter on my 2017 Sonata PHEV, so any tips are much appreciated!

Specific questions include;

1) Thoughts on switching to a full synthetic oil?
2) Using a quality aftermarket oil filter vs original Hyundai filter?
3) Increasing the mileage interval between oil changes with a full synthetic oil?

Hi Charlie, why switch to a synthetic oil (more expensive), unless of course you are hoping to increase the oil change intervals.

What is the interval recommended in the manual?
