Oil changes are one of your Hyundai’s most common routine services, and they’re one of the most important. Your Elantra needs the right amount of oil for its engine to run properly. Unfortunately, it also needs the right type of oil. Find out what Hyundai Elantra oil you need for your sedan before your next DIY oil change.

When it comes to your Hyundai Elantra oil type, there are two options: conventional and synthetic. Conventional oil is unrefined crude oil. It’s more affordable than synthetic oil, but it requires you to get oil changes more frequently — every 3,000 miles.

Synthetic oil starts out the same as conventional, but it undergoes a refinement process to remove any impurities. It’s then mixed with additives to help you adapt better to newer engine technologies. While synthetic oil is more costly, it’s the better option if you want it to last longer. With this option, you only need to change your Hyundai Elantra oil every 6000 to 7500 miles because it breaks down at a slower rate.

How Much Oil Does a Hyundai Elantra Take

The 2021 Hyundai Elantra with the 1.6L 4-cyl engine takes 5.1 quarts (with filter) of 0W-20 synthetic oil. The Hyundai Elantra with a 2.0L 4-cyl engine takes 4.5 quarts (with filter) of 0W-20 or 5W-30 synthetic oil. A new oil filter and a crush washer are required.

 

What kind of oil do you use for a Hyundai Elantra?

Hyundai recommends using 5W-20 or 5W-30 engine oil in the 2014 Hyundai Elantra at all temperatures. Still, you can opt for 10W-30 oil if the temperature does not fall below 0 degrees F before your next scheduled oil change. In addition, you can use regular or synthetic oil in your Elantra without any change in viscosity.

  1. You have a typo in your first paragraph stating you use a 0w-20 in the 2.0L when in fact it is 5w-20 as is stated in your second paragraph.

      2014-2020 2.0l Elantra requires 5W-20 oil, while the 2021 2.0l Elantra – 0W-20
