Hyundai Maintenance in the Oklahoma City Area

While your new or new-to-you Hyundai vehicle may come standard with top-of-the-line amenities, all vehicles continue to require regular maintenance to maintain them in their ideal condition. You've probably heard it before, but the best kind of maintenance is the routine kind. Contrarily when minor issues go unnoticed, they can grow over time. Knowing what to do for your car can take an expert. Here are the most frequently asked questions our dealership gets about Oklahoma City Hyundai maintenance.

    • Hyundai Certified Maintenance

Why should I choose a Hyundai licensed service provider for my car maintenance?

Not only will these technicians provide first-rate auto service, but ensure use of state-of-the-art equipment and genuine Hyundai parts, including a full warranty for all completed service and repairs.

    • Hyundai Oil Change - Oklahoma City

How often should I change my oil?

While auto technicians swear by the 3 month or 3,000-7,000 mile oil-change rule, this may or may not be true of your make and model. The first suggestion is to check your car's manual. This will give you the most precise answer available, especially for newer models. Unfortunately, however, the manual provides little guidance when it comes to vehicle age, history, and wear. This more complete diagnosis requires an expert. If your mechanic is unsure, then phone your Hyundai dealer right away for the best advice.

    • Hyundai Brake Change

When should I get new brakes?

Each auto service appointment should come with a standard inspection. A licensed Hyundai technician will inspect your vehicle for any needed services. As brake quality is judged by size, look, and feel, this is the best way to check your brakes. Always have squeaky brakes looked at, as it can be a symptom of a bigger issue.

    • Hyundai Tire Rotation

What is a tire rotation? And when should I get it?

A car's sole point of contact with the pavement is the tires. Because of this constant pressure, periodic rotation is required to best distribute the wear and tear. After 6,000 to 8,000 miles, a tire rotation is advised. Rotation guarantees that the tires will wear evenly. Note, also, that off-roading and 4WD, as well as individual driving habits may influence your tire rotation frequency and interval, outside of a regular Hyundai tire rotation schedule.

 

  • Hyundai Battery Replacement

 

What kind of preventive maintenance is necessary for my auto battery?

The normal car battery will last between 3 to 5 years, dependent upon use and care. The best way to avoid a battery problem is monitor your vehicle's battery health. This typically occurs during a routine maintenance inspection. Most car batteries, like other perishable goods, have a clearly marked date of expiration.

 

  • Hyundai Brake Pad Replacement

 

How long will my brake pads last?

The working life of a brake pad depends upon your daily driving habits and most especially, the operating environment. Based on severe to moderate usage, brake pads are usually designed to last through twenty to twenty-five thousand miles. Factors that will significantly reduce its life are frequent braking, high-speed braking, temperature elevation and driving on uneven areas or rocky terrain. On average, brake pads may give from forty to sixty thousand miles of pad life in normal driving conditions.

 

  • The Check Engine Light

 

What's the check engine light mean?

Computerized dashboards are standard traitsin most modern cars and trucks. These include sensors and indicators to assist drivers in managing vehicle safety. Common reasons that your check engine light has come on include low tire pressure, missing gas cap, or time for an oil change. This light also produces a computerized error code which is easily read by a diagnostic machine.

 

  • Hyundai Fuel Filter

 

When do I replace my car's fuel filter?

A clean fuel filter is essential for optimal and trouble-free engine performance. Always consult your Hyundai technician or automakers' manual, but fuel filters typically can operate between 20,000-40,000 miles.

 

  • Hyundai Engine & Ignition System

 

Why won't my Hyundai start?

Although there may be numerous reasons why your Hyundai won't start, the most obvious reason may be the battery. If the lights were left on, then its likely that the charge is out. One sign of a low battery charge is if it takes longer to start your Hyundai when you turn the key. Of course, there may be other reasons why your Hyundai won't start, so it's best to consult a certified Hyundai technician.
