As with most other consumer-grade vehicles, the 2019 Santa Fe uses parts and fluids that you can find just about everywhere. The next time you’re at the auto parts store, either pick up a quart of 5W-20 or 5W-30 oil; these are the recommended build for the Santa Fe, and also two of the most commonly available. This makes it much easier to know that you’re getting the best performance possible!

How to check the oil in your 2019 Hyundai Santa Fe

The 2019 Santa Fe comes outfitted with an oil gauge that can clue you in to its oil life, but if you’re looking to check it out for yourself, here’s how! (Keep in mind that you’ll need a microfiber cloth or paper towel to help out.)

  1. Open your hood and locate the oil dipstick; it should be denoted by either a red or yellow handle. Then pull it out.
  2. Taking your rag, wipe away the excess oil from your dipstick. Then stick it back into its holster.
  3. Wait about five minutes for oil to collect on your dipstick then pull it back out.

See those lifted grooves on your dipstick? They act as a gauge so that you can see how much oil is left in your engine. If it’s getting low, you should aim to get your oil swapped out as soon as you can.
