To those that have already changed your oil on a 2017 ES, please list the following:

Miles at first oil change,
Oil change frequency,
Oil weight and brand,
Oil filter brand (include part number if possible).

I'm not necessarily looking for a discussion, just more of actual usage.

Thanks for your input!



*Mods - feel free to delete if a thread already exist for the 2017 Elantra Sport. I did search, but didn't find it.

After reading BITOG forums a bit, I'll end up doing the same as you. It seems like fuel dilution is a big issue on these motors. Do you have any other preferences on oil type? Amsoil is a pain to find around here. Also, what is the OEM part number on the filter? I looked up the Veloster turbo, and it's 26300-35503 - I assume same motor, same filter... figured it was worth checking though.

Thanks!

There is actually no other oil I'll ever use for a GDI turbo. I won't even consider it. Go to the Amsoil website, sign up for a membership, and get it mail order. It'll cost just a tad more than Penzoil Ultra Platinum, and it arrives at your door in 48 hours or less - I usually get mine the next business day.

The filter part number is 26300-35504. The 26300-35503 is a Mann filter developed for Hyundai. 26300-35504 - I'm not sure who manufactures it, but it's a slightly better filter. Either will fit and both will do what you need them to do.

I am little confused here. To me it somehow doesn't make sense to change the fully synthetic oil at an interval of 6000kms. Is there any specific reason we need to keep the intervals of oil change to 6000kms.

Ounce of prevention, is worth a pound of cure? Wait for your oil of choice to go on sale(Walmart has 4L Mobil1 5/30 on for 28.88CDN right now) and stock up. It doesn't go bad. Multi packs of our filters can be had on Amazon with drain plug crush washers for very good prices. Oil is cheap, motors are not.

~1,500 miles first oil change.

Every 3K now.

Hyundai oil filter and new drain plug crush gasket every time.

Pennz 5W30 Platinum. Satisfies all recommendations in the ambiguous owners manual specs.

Viscosity: 5W30 recommended

Spec: A5/B5

Availability: Wal Mart

Price: $23

I have no allegiance to any oil company, and i usually buy whatever meets the specs for cheapest......Pennz 5W30 Platinum is the only oil that checks all of these boxes.

Based on the Amsoil comparison testing that they publish, in my mind Pennzoil is the next best all-around choice, is readily available and costs much less. That's what I'm using.

Yep, I figure since I'm 100% stock, don't track my car, doing 3K intervals, and it's an $18.5K Hyundai, Pennz Platinum with OEM filter is more than good enough.

Read enough of bobistheoilguy to know that the A5/B5 spec in the owner's manual is important, as it relates to the oil's lower evaporative qualities vs oils that don't meet that spec. This keeps your intake valves cleaner in a GDI engine. That's why it's in the owner's manual.

They should explain that in the owner's manual though. Not all synthetic 5W30 meets that spec.

The owners manual also lists an alternate oil rating/spec.

Yes, it says you can use a 40 weight, but 5W30 is recommended.

Thicker oil does not automatically mean it protects better.

Hyundai wants you to use 5W30 ACEA A5 when available. It's easily available to me, so that's what I use.

They wouldn't specify ACEA A5 if it didn't matter.

The Amsoil test noted that. Penzoil was 2nd best of all tested. Our thought process is the same.

Just FYI, there is currently a $2/qt mail-in rebate on Pennzoil through the end of the year. Details here Save $2 Per Quart | United States. Was able to order 5 qts of Platinum 5W-30 from Amazon yesterday for $8.14 after the rebate. Great deal!
Just keep in mind that there's a difference between Pennzoil Platinum and "Ultra Platinum". God that's annoying. Hopefully not too much of a difference, but I'm sticking with Ultra to be safe.

Well there ya go, nice find.

That NOACK Volatility Test is key. The less oil vapor/droplets in the crankcase ventilation system, the less oil vapor/droplets getting baked onto the back of your intake valves.

Everyone talks about catch cans, but it seems the ACEA A5 oil spec is hardly ever mentioned.

As far as Pennz ultra platinum vs platinum, I use the kind called just "Platinum". At the end of the day, it doesn't matter what it's called or what brand it is, just that it meets Hyundai's recommended spec.

Then you have dealers putting 5w20 into our cars that probably doesn't meet that spec. Some of you guys try so hard to meet these specs and when it comes down to it, it doesn't really matter because the dealers are not following them either.

Any one using the Fram Ultra oil filter? Good or bad?
Use OEM
