Hyundai Santa Cruz: Maintenance / Engine Oil

Checking the Engine Oil Level

Engine oil is used for lubricating, cooling, and operating various hydraulic components in the engine. Engine oil consumption while driving is normal, and it is necessary to check and refill the engine oil regularly. Also, check and refill the oil level within the recommended maintenance schedule to prevent deterioration of oil performance.

Check the engine oil following the below procedure.

Gasoline engine

1. Follow all of the oil manufacturer’s precautions.

2. Be sure the vehicle is on the level ground in P (Park) with the parking brake set and the wheels blocked.

3. Turn the engine on and warm the engine up until the coolant temperature reaches a constant normal temperature.

4. Turn the engine off, remove the oil filler cap and pull the dipstick out. Wait for 15 minutes for the oil to return to the oil pan.

5. Wipe the dipstick clean and re-insert it fully.

6. Pull the dipstick out again and check the level. The level should be between F (Full) and L (Low).

7. If the oil level is below the L, add enough oil to bring the level to F.

Use only the specified engine oil (Refer to “Recommended Lubricants and Capacities” section in chapter 2).
