Hyundai Kona: Maintenance / Engine oil

Checking the engine oil level (Gasoline engine)

1. Be sure the vehicle is on level ground.

2. Start the engine and allow it to reach normal operating temperature.

3. Turn the engine off and wait for a few minutes (about 5 minutes) for the oil to return to the oil pan.

4. Pull the dipstick out, wipe it clean, and re-insert it fully.

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

6. If it is near or at L, add enough oil to bring the level to F.

WARNING

Radiator hose

Be very careful not to touch the radiator hose when checking or adding the engine oil as it may be hot enough to burn you.

NOTICE

Use only the specified engine oil. (Refer to “Recommended lubricants and capacities” in chapter 8.)

Checking the engine oil and filter

We recommend that the engine oil and filter be replaced by an authorized HYUNDAI dealer.

Used engine oil may cause irritation or cancer of the skin if left in contact with the skin for prolonged periods of time. Used engine oil contains chemicals that have caused cancer in laboratory animals. Always protect your skin by washing your hands thoroughly with soap and warm water as soon as possible after handling used oil.
