SCHEDULED MAINTENANCE SERVICES
Follow Normal Maintenance Schedule if the vehicle is usually operated where none of
the following conditions apply. If any of the following conditions apply, you must follow
the Maintenance Under Severe Usage Conditions.
ś Repeated driving short distance of less than 5 miles (8 km) in normal temperature or
less than 10 miles (16 km) in freezing temperature
ś Extensive engine idling or low speed driving for long distances
ś Driving on rough, dusty, muddy, unpaved, graveled or salt-spread roads
ś Driving in areas using salt or other corrosive materials or in very cold weather
ś Driving in heavy dust conditions
ś Driving in heavy traffic area
ś Driving on uphill, downhill, or mountain road
ś Using for towing or camping, and driving with loading on the roof
ś Driving as a patrol car, taxi, other commercial use of vehicle towing
ś Frequently driving under high speed or rapid acceleration/deceleration
ś Frequently driving in stop-and-go condition
ś Engine oil usage which is not recommended (Mineral type, Semi-synthetic, Lower
grade spec, etc.)
If your vehicle is operated under the above conditions, you should inspect, replace
or refill more frequently than the following Normal Maintenance Schedule. After the
periods or distance shown in the chart, continue to follow the prescribed maintenance
intervals.
Information
After driving more than 10 years or 100,000 miles, use severe maintenance schedule.
9-7
Maintenance
Information
ś It is normal for engine oil to be consumed during driving. The engine oil level should
be checked on regular basis.
ś The engine oil change interval for normal operating conditions is based on the use
of the recommended engine specification in chapter 2. If the recommended engine
oil specification is not used, then replace the engine oil according to the maintenance
schedule under severe operating conditions.
ś The vehicle may be equipped with the Oil Life Management System that predicts
engine oil life based on the driver’s driving history and alerts the driver to change
engine oil.
- If the deterioration of the engine oil increases depending on the driver’s driving
style, the remaining oil life alert will appear on the instrument cluster before the
normal engine oil replacement interval. Have the engine oil and filter changed by
an authorized HYUNDAI dealer. Oil Life Management System works when the
recommended engine oil is used.
- If the recommended engine oil is not used, replace the engine oil according to the
maintenance schedule under severe usage conditions. Also, check the engine oil level
regularly as this system assumes that the engine oil is being filled normally.
- Always reset the remaining engine oil life whenever the engine oil is changed.
Otherwise, the indication of remaining Oil life in the Oil Life Management System
may not be accurate. To reset the Oil Change Reminder, select ‘RESET’ from
the instrument cluster or infotainment system screen. Then, select ‘Yes’ when the
message “Has the engine oil been changed? Press [Yes] to reset the oil life.” appears
on the screen.
- If there is no alert until the maximum maintenance interval, have the vehicle
checked by an authorized HYUNDAI dealer.

Vapor Hose and Fuel Filler Cap
The vapor hose and fuel filler cap should
be inspected at those intervals specified
in the maintenance schedule. Your

replacement is needed.
Vacuum Crankcase Ventilation
Hoses
Inspect the surface of hoses for evidence
of heat and/or mechanical damage.
Hard and brittle rubber, cracking,
tears, cuts, abrasions, and excessive
swelling indicate deterioration. Particular
attention should be paid to examine
those hose surfaces nearest to high heat
sources, such as the exhaust manifold.
Inspect the hose routing to ensure that
the hoses do not come in contact with
any heat source, sharp edges or moving
component which might cause heat
damage or mechanical wear. Inspect
all hose connections, such as clamps
and couplings, to make sure they are
secure, and that no leaks are present.
Hoses should be replaced immediately if
there is any evidence of deterioration or
damage.
