Oil changes are one of your Hyundai’s most common routine services and are 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 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 better 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 Does a Hyundai Elantra Use?

5W-20 or 5W-30 engine oil should be used in the 2014 Hyundai Elantra at all times, according to Hyundai. If your next scheduled oil change isn’t until 0 degrees F or colder, you may use 10W-30 oil instead. In addition, regardless of type, you can put any of your Elantras on regular or synthetic oil without changing viscosity.

    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.

    1. Dan Hoffman

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

    How much oil is needed for a dry fill (after engine swap.. ie dry fill) in a 2015 Hyundai Elantra SE 1.8 L Nu Engine. My records show 4.23 Q for a wet fill (oil changes).. but I can’t figure out the dry fill requirement stated in the book.

    1. Dan Hoffman

      It is 4.5 liters (4.8 quarts) of oil for a dry fill.
