Information

  • As it is normal for engine oil to be consumed during driving, the engine oil level should be checked on a regular basis.
  • The engine of the 2023 Hyundai Elantra oil change interval for normal operating conditions is based on the use of the recommended engine specification.
  • The vehicle may be equipped with the Oil Life Management System that predicts engine oil life based on the driver’s driving history and alerts the driver to change engine oil.
  • If the deterioration of the engine oil increases depending on the driver’s driving severity, the remaining oil life alert appears on the instrument cluster before the normal engine oil replacement interval. Have the engine oil and filter changed by an authorized HYUNDAI dealer.
  • The oil Life Management System works when the recommended engine oil is used. So, if the recommended engine oil is not used, replace the engine oil according to the maintenance schedule under severe usage conditions.
    Also, check the amount of engine oil regularly as this system assumes that the engine oil is being filled normally.
  • Always reset the remaining engine oil life whenever the engine oil is changed. Otherwise, the indication of remaining Oil life in the Oil Life Management System may not be accurate. To reset the Engine of the 2023 Hyundai Elantra oil change Reminder, select ‘RESET’ from the infotainment system screen. Then, select ‘Yes’ when the message “Has the engine oil been changed?
