Hyundai Santa Fe oil capacity

Motor oil lubricates and cools the internal parts of your engine. It also helps to remove contaminants, and in some cases may condition seals to extend the life of the engine. Regular oil changes are necessary to remove oil that has collected contaminants and replace it with fresh oil. Your manufacturer will specify the oil change interval and oil type and weight for your specific vehicle.

If you have an oil leak or your engine burns oil, it may be necessary to add some oil between oil changes. A low oil level will trigger your oil pressure warning light and can cause damage to your engine. When you’re ready for your next oil change, pick up oil and an oil filter from O’Reilly Auto Parts. We carry the types and weights of oil recommended for your vehicle.

How to check the oil in your 2019 Hyundai Santa Fe

The 2019 Santa Fe comes outfitted with an oil gauge that can clue you in to its oil life, but if you’re looking to check it out for yourself, here’s how! (Keep in mind that you’ll need a microfiber cloth or paper towel to help out.)

  • Open your hood and locate the oil dipstick; it should be denoted by either a red or yellow handle. Then pull it out.
  • Taking your rag, wipe away the excess oil from your dipstick. Then stick it back into its holster.
  • Wait about five minutes for oil to collect on your dipstick then pull it back out.
  • See those lifted grooves on your dipstick? They act as a gauge so that you can see how much oil is left in your engine. If it’s getting low, you should aim to get your oil swapped out as soon as you can.
