What is the 98 Hyundai Elantra oil type?
I inherited a ‘98 Hyundai Elantra from my grandmother. The car holds sentimental value to me, so I think I’m just going to change the oil on my own. What type of oil do I need for a 98 Hyundai Elantra?
Answer provided by
If you’re going to change the oil on your own, the 98 Hyundai Elantra’s oil type is either 0W-20, 5W-20, or 5W-30. All of these motor oils will work, but you should go for the 0W-20 if you live in places with colder weather due to its lower viscosity.
To conduct an oil change, you’re also going to need a minimum of 4.5 quarts of motor oil. High-mileage motor oil is specifically formulated for older cars, so that’s probably your best bet.
While changing the oil in an older vehicle can help extend its longevity, don’t forget to protect your investment with a quality car insurance rate. Check out the Jerry app to compare quotes so you can protect your sentimental asset.
