If you are the owner of a Hyundai Accent, then it is important to know the Hyundai Accent’s Engine Oil Capacity. The Hyundai Accent takes 4 quarts of oil, and you can use 0W-20 weight oil. This article will cover the Hyundai Accent Engine Oil Capacity and what kind of oil to use in your car.
Engine oil viscosity (thickness) has an effect on fuel economy and cold weather operating (engine start and engine oil flowability). Lower-viscosity engine oils can provide better fuel economy and cold-weather performance. However, higher-viscosity engine oils are required for satisfactory lubrication in hot weather.
Using oils of any viscosity other than those recommended could result in engine damage.
For better fuel economy, it is recommended to use the engine oil of a viscosity grade SAE 0W-20/API Latest (ILSAC Latest) or ACEA C5.
However, if the engine oil is not available in your country, select the proper engine oil using the engine oil viscosity chart. Engine oil viscosity grade SAE 5W-30 is compatible with most climates and should be selected if other engine oil types are not readily available.
When choosing an oil, consider the range of temperature your vehicle will be operated in before the next oil change.
Always be sure to clean the area around any filler plug, drain plug, or dipstick before checking or draining any lubricant. This is especially important in dusty or sandy areas and when the vehicle is used on unpaved roads. Cleaning the plug and dipstick areas will prevent dirt and grit from entering the engine and other mechanisms that could be damaged.
The fourth-generation Accent is a successful car in many ways. It stands out against the numerous competitors for its bright, attractive exterior and interior design and also provides a good level of equipment for a moderate amount of money.
