Question First Oil Change: When?

Ladies and Gents,

Do you just follow the manual for the first oil change interval, or do you change it early?

At what mileage do you change it and why?

Truth alone triumphs, not untruth.

You'll get many opinions. I do mine about 2000 miles. Then go to synthetic, if you can, and change that every 5000 miles?

Probably going to dealer. I do about 3,750 in about 6 months at this point so going 5,000 miles will not happen. Will use what the dealership provides which is not synthetic.

I guess I am more concerned about what may be in my engine with 1,550 miles and if there is long term consequences if not changed early?

A lot of manufacturers are advising against changing too early.

When the engine is assembled they use moly on the pistons, rings, crank bearings, etc. As the oil circulates it picks up the moly and spreads it around the engine, and it bonds with the metal and provides added protection.

I used to change mine at 1500 miles with a new car...back in the 70's and 80's. These days tolerances are tighter and metal is lighter, so the longer you leave the "break-in" oil in the better...up to a point. I would do it before 4,000 miles, though.

That's my opinion, of course.

That said, out of all those 70's/80's cars, 4 of them went over 225,000 miles with no oil-related issues.

Do you know any satisfying profanity?!

dunno about the 2017, but our 2016 maintenance log says 7500 miles/12 months, whichever is sooner. dealer insists on 3500/3 months. but they are profit driven. i follow the maintenance log, and i also had hyundai of north america certify that our cars do NOT meet severe use criteria. if you have doubts, do an oil analysis:

Blackstone Labs

you will be surprised at the results

I love these oil threads. Do what you think works best for you. If you're happy at 3k, 7.5k, 10k, whatever. Being a member of a forum shows you care. So, do what you do best: be good to your ride. Your way. Then go have fun with your new car and don't sweat the intervals until they come due to your satisfaction.

I have my $19.95 first oil change coupon from the dealership. I am thinking just do the 3,750 mile/6 month thing with yearly tire rotation. That is what the dealership is set up to do. It is posted all over the service department. If I change now I am kinda out of sync with what MyHyundai and the dealership recommends. If I were changing the oil myself then that would be different. I could be more OCD.

Dealer says 3,750 in my extended warranty paperwork. Owner's manual is same or 6-month interval. But MyHyundai when I clicked on Dealer Service they say 3-months (of course the dealer will say that) $$$.

Can you post the certification from Hyundai on severe service?

Not doing extended oil changes so I will pass on Blackstone. I used them before. I have been a member of BITOG for 13 years. Not sure I learned much yet.

Sure you have. You've learned there's as many opinions on there as there are respondents. I read the thing for about an hour some years ago. Went back and read some more. Finally, I said "Phooey," turned and walked away. Been doing it every 3,750 w/ filter every since.
